Academic Affairs Mission Statement
The mission of Academic Affairs is to promote a culture of academic excellence as this is integral to both the institutional mission and strategic plan of Siena College. Informed by the Siena Learning Goals and outcomes-based decision making, the Office supports a student-centered focus in all academic departments, co-curricular programs, and academic support services. Faculty members are supported as teachers and scholars as they prepare students for further study and professional accomplishment. Committed to the Franciscan and liberal arts traditions, Academic Affairs encourages concern for the welfare of humanity, dedication to public service, and an awareness of the social issues confronting a diverse global society.
