The Office of Academic Affairs, led by the Vice President (Academic Affairs) is responsible for the leadership and management of academic programs and a number of related academic support services through the following offices:
The primary role of the Office of Academic Affairs is to analyze major trends in the society that have an impact on higher education nationally and regionally. The Office continues to invest in initiatives to strengthen the academic quality of the University.
At the Writing Center, professional writing instructors help students in one-on-one sessions and small-group workshops. Students may consult the writing staff about any aspect of the writing process: getting started, developing and organizing ideas, refining the thesis and argument, writing with more clarity, energy and confidence, managing time, approaching long projects, writing research papers and dealing with writing anxiety. Students can make appointments at the Academic Affairs Office.
Writing English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) is a program that provides international students with English and ESL support. ESL instructors work with students in private or small group sessions to review written work, review grammar and syntax, and practice pronunciation.
The Academic Support Center provides walk-in tutorial services. Tutors work with students who want to improve their conceptual understanding in math, science and economics. The Center also helps students fortify study habits and improve problem-solving skills.
Peer Tutoring is available to any student enrolled in a course at ANUC free of charge. Students who are concerned about their academic performance are advised to discuss their concerns with the professor in the course. Therefore, students interested in working with peer tutors must first receive the approval of their professors. A member of the staff is available for short-term counseling sessions to help students address problems that impede academic progress, e.g., procrastination, time mismanagement, competing priorities (academic and social) and related issues.
