liaison to undergraduate academic programs for (1) integrating
experiential learning opportunities-including, but not limited to,
internships, study abroad and global learning, research,
leadership, service learning, and employment-and (2) improving
student success outcomes broadly. The AVP is responsible for
strategic leadership and management focused on improving
undergraduate co-curricular educational experiences. The AVP also
maintains a focus on undergraduate student success university-wide
and champions access and educational equity for underserved
populations. Critical to this role are partnerships among colleges,
undergraduate programs, Office of Academic Affairs, and the
Division of Student Affairs. The AVP oversees the Office of
Undergraduate Research (URSA), the Reserve Officer Training Corps
(ROTC) units (Airforce, Army, and Navy), OSU's Office of Global
Opportunities (OSU GO), and the University Innovation Alliance
