University of Holy Cross

Message from the Provost & Vice President for Academic Affairs

Welcome to The University of Holy Cross (UHC) Department of Academic Affairs. UHC was founded by the Marianites of Holy Cross and prides itself in its mission to educate the hearts and minds of our students. Small classes and caring instructors aid us in fulfilling that mission. We offer two doctoral degrees, seven master’s degrees, twenty-two bachelor’s degrees, and six associate’s degrees—thirty-seven in all. Multiple concentrations and tracks within degree programs expand the offerings even further.

 Teaching and learning is aided by an outstanding faculty and reinforced through a wealth of support services. The Center for Teaching and Learning, the Blaine S. Kern Library, the Office of Student Life, Campus Ministry, and the Thomas E. Chambers Counseling and Training Center are prime examples of that commitment. In conjunction with our latest accreditation review by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, the University has opted to expand its support services through a quality enhancement plan for writing in the disciplines titled, Let’s Write, Right. Its overarching goal is to prepare all students graduating with a baccalaureate degree to enter their professional careers with the communication skills needed for success and advancement.

As an academic community, the University of Holy Cross is committed to academic quality in all that we do. Toward that end and on behalf of the UHC Office of Academic Affairs, I invite your questions and comments and look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for your interest in the University of Holy Cross.
