Introduction to Academic Affairs

Division of Academic Affairs Mission Statement

The Division of Academic Affairs (DAA) delivers instruction on all campuses and at a distance designed primarily to meet students’ needs for developmental skills, general education knowledge, employment-related needs and skills for life-long learning, as well as specialized study that is either aimed at immediate career application or at achieving a baccalaureate degree. DAA focuses on outreach, access and students’ success by developing relationships with high schools and four-year colleges and universities, including brokering four-year programs offered in southern Maryland. Transfer programs, career programs, as well as continuing education courses and related co-curricular programming, community services, and culture enrichment offerings are delivered by eight divisions and the Corporate and Community Training Institute.

The academic divisions that make up DAA include: Biology and Physical Sciences (BIO); Business and Technology (BAT); Communications, Arts and Humanities (CAH); Health Sciences (HEA); Languages and Literature (LAN); Math, Physics and Engineering (MTH); and Social Sciences and Public Services (SOC). Distance Learning and Faculty Development (DLF) and the Intergrative Learning Center (ILC) are "service" divisions of DAA.
