The Academic Affairs function is designed to facilitate and support the thematic values of the university:
- The primacy of the learner and student engagement
- The central importance of good teaching and its connection to interactive relationships within the learning experiences
- The value of dynamic links to the larger social, economic and professional realities
Within a shared governance framework, Academic Affairs is responsible for academic program development and delivery, scholarly activity, academic policies, enrolment management, educational technology, the Centre for the Advancement of Faculty Excellence, and a number of supporting functions to support learner success and faculty engagement. In addition, Academic Affairs is accountable for the institutional and educational technology mandate at MacEwan as well as the requirements of Institutional Research.
