A Message from Gangaram Singh
Welcome to the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost! As National University’s chief academic officer, my goal is to provide academic leadership to the university’s schools and colleges and further our mission of providing accessible, achievable education to adult learners from all over the world.
National University, San Diego’s largest private nonprofit university offers flexible degree, certificate, and credential programs to busy adults who are balancing work, family life, military duties, and everything in between. An education from NU prepares our students to seek career advancement, pursue new career paths, and reach goals they’ve long been working toward. Throughout their programs, students gain relevant, real-world skills and expertise from faculty members who are practitioners in their fields and who provide unwavering support from day one to graduation day.
I encourage you to learn more about our academic programs, our distinguished faculty, and our supportive NU community. If you have any questions, please reach out to me directly or the Office of the Provost, and we’ll be happy to address any concerns you may have.
“My goal is to provide academic leadership and further our mission of providing accessible, achievable education to adult learners from all over the world.”
