Academic Affairs


The Office of Academic Affairs, led by Dr. Jeanne Daffron, Provost, ensures the quality and integrity of all academic programs.  Here you will find access to the information and resources that make up the university’s rich academic life. At Western, students’ experiences inside and outside the classroom are seamlessly integrated in an environment where faculty, staff and students live, learn and serve the broader community.
