Welcome to the BSD OAA Website

This web site has been designed to provide useful information to administrators and academic staff. Our hope is you will find this a beneficial resource for a broad array of needs.

The Biological Sciences Division's (BSD) Office of Academic Affairs (OAA) is part of the BSD Office of the Dean. OAA provides human resource services to academic units and administrative staff on a wide range of topics related to academic personnel management within the BSD. OAA's web site is intended to be an information link for accessing definitive information regarding processes, procedures, and policies associated with, among other topics, academic appointment, reappointment, and promotion within the Biological Science Division. OAA works closely with other administrative units on campus such as the Office of the Provost, Office of Legal Counsel, Staff Benefits, Payroll Office, Medical Staff Office, etc. in order to provide you with timely and complete information about BSD academic human resource management.
