The Office of Undergraduate Education (UE) is a campus office reporting to the Provost. Its charge is to examine the entire undergraduate student experience, assess outcomes, identify gaps, and launch and support student-facing campus initiatives.  Current key projects in UE include a focus on first-year academic programs with the development of First Year Seminars and First-year Interest Groups (FIGs); the coordination of undergraduate academic policies; the development of a coordinated campus advising structure; the coordination of the math placement process; and the coordination and assessment of campus retention and persistence initiatives. We are currently working on a two year initiative, Foundations of Excellence, which is focused on optimizing the first-year experience of our undergraduates.
