Academic Affairs

Welcome to Academic Affairs

Welcome to the Office of the Provost and Division of Academic Affairs at Cal State San Bernardino. Driven by the core values of the university, our areas of focus center on the success of our diverse and growing student body and supporting the esteemed educators who enrich and inspire them.  Specifically, the division is charged with overseeing the university’s five colleges as well as several related entities, including academic programs, academic research, academic resources, graduate studies, undergraduate studies, the John M. Pfau Library, academic personnel, teaching resources, extended learning and our expanding Palm Desert campus. Among our major efforts is the quarter to semester conversion, which is expected to begin in fall 2020.

I invite you to explore our webpages to learn more about our array of programs and resources, which aim to foster professional, ethical and intellectual development on our campus and beyond.

Warm Regards,

Shari McMahan
