Compared to other administrative offices on campus, Academic Affairs presents unique document and process management challenges. In order to reach consensus and approval for various matters under collaborative review, such as Curriculum Review or Tenure and Promotion Review, the office must communicate with numerous stakeholders, from individual faculty members to faculty committees, to deans, VPs, and the school’s Chancellor or Provost.
