Who We Are

The Office of Academic Affairs (OAA) is the central administrative office, with responsibility for the institutional academic mission, programming and policy implementation, support programs for academic personnel and students, academic fiscal management, and collective bargaining with the American Association of University Professors, (AAUP-PSU Chapter), and the American Federation of Teachers Union, (PSUFA).

OAA is guided by the Provost who serves as chief academic officer of the university. Working with deans and other administrators, the Provost collaborates with the campus and external communities to achieve the academic mission and vision of the University. Academic Affairs is the administrative home for all academic units. See OAA organizational chart.
