Academic Affairs

The Office of Academic Affairs welcomes you to Allen University!

Our unit is the heartbeat of the University and through faith and God’s guidance, we ignite a passion for leading, learning and believing. We are an academic community comprised of the faculty and staff of multiple academic Divisions and Departments. The Registrar, the Grants Office, and the J.S. Flipper Library are also departments in this unit. We work closely together to bring out the best in our students, to help them surpass their expectations, and to give students the best possible higher education experience. Academic Affairs is responsible for the oversight of curriculum development; community collaborations; academic policies; and university and program accreditation(s). This includes creating authentic life experiences, to develop leaders who are ethical, and who uphold positive principles and the university’s Core Values.

We want our students to be prosperous in their chosen careers but also throughout their spiritual lives. I welcome you to the Allen University family and I invite you to be actively engaged in our programs and campus community.
