Slippery Rock University is comprised of four colleges and graduate studies. The Office of the Provost oversees these units and is charged with ensuring the quality of faculty and the student body, academic policy and maintaining educational excellence.

Each college is comprised of a number of academic departments through which academic programs are delivered. As a Slippery Rock University student, you major and minor in an academic discipline that is delivered through an academic department within a college.

Slippery Rock University enjoys an outstanding and growing reputation for high-quality undergraduate and graduate academic instruction.  Our reputation is based on the accomplishments of exceptional faculty. The President's Awards for Teaching, Scholarly and Creative Achievment is the annual publication dedicated to honoring and recognizing the committment and dedication of our faculty.

Another way that Slippery Rock University recognizes the scholarly endeavors, exciting accomplishments, and potential research opportunities for faculty and students is through the Rock Research Expo an online newsletter that is published twice a year.
