The Office of the Vice Chancellor (OVC) works with students, faculty, and staff from across the Institute to enhance the undergraduate and graduate student academic experience.

OVC consists of 20 offices and programs, which provide a broad range of academic programming and services for students and faculty. By partnering with community members, OVC aims to make improvements for all students in areas such as the first-year undergraduate experience, advising and mentoring, professional and career development, and diversity, equity, and inclusion. This includes serving as the primary educational point of contact for key student organizations, such as the Undergraduate Association and the Graduate Student Council, and working closely with faculty governance and departmental and school administrators to implement and administer policies and procedures related to undergraduate and graduate education.

Reporting to the chancellor, OVC also works closely with offices and programs across the Institute, including the Division of Student Life, the Open Learning, IS&T, and school and department leadership.
