Undergraduate Academic Affairs

Hunter Richardson

Vice President of Academic Affairs

Welcome to Academic Affairs! The Academic Affairs Board is composed of two committees: Curriculum and Classroom Policies and Educational Enhancement.The Academic Affairs Board aims to promote the academic growth and well-being of students at Georgia Tech by developing strategic initiatives and goals that address the current and specific needs of the student body. The board strives to create an inclusive, fair, and holistic academic environment inside and outside of the traditional classroom. Members of Academic Affairs work closely with the Georgia Tech Administration and departments across campus to implement lasting improvements to academics at Tech. As representatives of the student body, members provide a forum for students to voice their opinions, that we might better identify and address unmet needs.


Curriculum & Classroom Practices Committee

The Curriculum and Classroom Practices (CCP) Committee strives to enrich Georgia Tech education by developing educational opportunities for students within the classroom through innovative, whole-person curriculum and supportive classroom practices and policies, such as student rules and regulations review, faculty-student development, and department and Institute curriculum initiatives. The committee continuously measures the efficiency and efficacy of policies implemented across campus to ensure effective and fair academic systems for students. Past and current initiatives include extending ‘Freshman Forgiveness’ to all undergraduate students, creating Mini-Mesters, and helping revitalize APPH course curriculum.

Educational Enhancement Committee

The Educational Enhancement (EE) Committee strives to enrich the Georgia Tech education by developing educational opportunities for students beyond the classroom, such as undergraduate research, leadership development, professional experience, service-learning, and international programs. Such educational opportunities help foster a more holistic educational experience that encourages exploration, collaboration, and personalization in vibrant and diverse learning environments. Past and current initiatives include gathering student input on study abroad options, increased support for transfer students, and increased study space on campus.
