Interim Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost
Sylvia Manning, PhD
As the Interim Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost of Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science (CDU), I am delighted to welcome you to the Academic Affairs section of the University website, where you will find the University’s vision, mission, and values, and a lot of detailed, important information.
The role of Academic Affairs is to realize the University’s mission through rich and enduring education and co-curricular experiences for all our students. To do this, we are organized into two colleges and one school: the College of Medicine, College of Science and Health, and Mervyn M. Dymally College of Nursing.
These academic units are the custodians, promoters, and implementers of the CDU Advantage, the promise that distinguishes this university from others. The CDU Advantage defines an educational experience that develops leadership, advocacy, and activism. A CDU education prepares students to be the best health professionals there are, but also to be leaders dedicated to transforming the world of medicine, following in the footsteps of Dr. Charles R. Drew, the pioneer in the science of blood transfusion. A CDU education prepares students to become advocates for underserved populations, a voice for the voiceless and the downtrodden. A CDU education prepares students to become activists against social injustice and health disparities. That is the mission of CDU.
Charles.R Drew University is currently undertaking a search for three key positions with the university. Click on a link below to learn about these opportunities. You can also visit our job board for other career opportunities at CDU.
