Our Mission

The Office of Undergraduate Studies collaborates with the schools, academic departments, faculty, and other administrative offices to develop and sustain academic programs and policies that inspire and challenge undergraduates at Case Western Reserve University.

In pursuit of this goal,

  • We participate in curricular discussions and reviews within and among the units offering undergraduate courses and academic programs, and coordinate the presentation of undergraduate curricular offerings and policies to students, other members of the CWRU community, and external constituencies.

  • We support faculty in their teaching and in their academic advising in the undergraduate majors and minors, administer the academic policies of the faculty, and monitor the progress of undergraduates in completing degree requirements, working closely with the Student Success Initiative.

  • We work with the Office of Institutional Research to analyze data to inform the successful progress of undergraduates through the curriculum.
