About the Academic Programs and Student Life team

The Academic Programs and Student Life (APSL) team is situated within the Office of Academic and Student Affairs. This team leads a wide range of success-oriented work with and for current students at the School of Information (UMSI) across academic programs. There are four main pillars of work within the APSL team including academic program management, academic advising, student success and support and student life. Additionally, we assist students with personal concerns and navigation challenges, both directly and through referrals to campus services and resources. Our team develops and implements student assessment and evaluation for the academic programs and our team’s services and works with students and faculty to develop new programs and initiatives.
