Office of Academic Affairs
Kingsborough’s Office of Academic Affairs (OAA) works with college faculty on academic programs, curriculum, assessment, faculty development, research, and other areas. OAA provides guidance to departments and ensures that KCC students have a well-rounded academic experience as well as a holistic support system through initiatives and programs such as Achieving the Dream, 15-to-Finish, ASAP, the Advisement Academies, Starfish and a focus on high-impact practices and co-curricular activities.
We in the OAA are passionate about higher education and the mission of Kingsborough Community College. We are proud to support our extraordinary faculty, and to team with faculty and staff to create a high-quality education and enriched campus experience for our students.
Our commitment to equity informs all the work we do. Equity is achieved through inclusion and through the active removal or mitigation of hindrances to full access to opportunities, resources and support for all members of a community. It also means ensuring that all members of said community have consistent and meaningful opportunities to participate in communal life and to play a role in shaping the culture of the community.
