About the Office of Academic Planning

The Office of Academic Planning focuses on campuswide initiatives such as academic engagement with UCI’s diverse communities; strategic centrally-supported faculty hiring; and ongoing implementation and assessment of our strategic plan. The Vice Provost for Academic Planning co-chairs the Academic Planning Group and its task forces, as well as leads the Council for Enrollment and Student Success, and frequently collaborates on UC systemwide activities. Additionally, administrators in Academic Planning coordinate approval of new degree programs and academic units, and all aspects of institutional accreditation.  

OAP and the Academic Planning Group coordinate implementation and ongoing assessment of UCI's Strategic PlanBright Past, Brilliant Future.  Thousands of our faculty, students, staff, alumni, and community members provided input, and the plan is a true reflection of our collective vision.  Now at the implementation and assessment stages, the strategic plan guides our work and leads us to shine brighter.
