What we do
Our goal is to enhance the academic experience across the university. As a leading public research university, UT Austin attracts top faculty and student talent from across the world. We work closely with departments, colleges and schools to recruit and admit top students from around the world, create educational environments that are inclusive, innovative and accessible, and provide experiential and collaborative opportunities for learners ranging from college students to entry-level job seekers, mid-career professionals to corporations and government agencies.
By using data, applying best practices and collaborating with the campus community, we help instructors create in-person and technology-enhanced learning strategies that enable students to thrive.
We support the development and implementation of new education ventures that enhance the university’s impact, extending access to first-class educational programs.
Our office also helps support assessment, accreditation and academic compliance, which is critical to the university maintaining its reputation for academic excellence. We lead efforts that strengthen cross-campus, data-driven planning and decision-making related to student learning and program outcomes. We also support undergraduate curriculum management and the process to create and update academic units across the university.
