Welcome to the faculty of Northwestern State!
Information about the University abounds, mostly from department heads, deans, directors, vice presidents, and president, and on the official Northwestern State website. The 2017 Faculty Handbook is the current official document. The Provost's Office (also known as the Vice President of Academic Affairs, VPAA) is the chief academic unit of NSULA, and its webpages offer various information and documents.
The links above are given for convenience; the pages are located in the corresponding sections of the University website.
