The Division of Academic Engagement and Student Achievement (DAESA) leads institutional efforts to academically engage students from all majors and provide a high-impact education as they proceed throughout their undergraduate degree program to commencement.
Formerly the Office of Undergraduate Education, DAESA and its many programs consistently strive to offer premier educational and transformative academic experiences through which students can excel personally and professionally. DAESA helps to foster core competencies and broad learning outcomes. Graduates are well prepared for lives of purpose, leadership, and global citizenship.
DAESA also supports all faculty members as they pursue professional development opportunities related to undergraduate education.
