Associated Students

Drop Shadow


Hi Toreros! My name is Courtney Ochi and I am honored to serve you as your Director of Academics. I am a senior, double majoring in Communication Studies and Spanish. I currently serve as Vice President of Public Relations and Marketing for my sorority, Alpha Chi Omega, as well as Student Coordinator at the Mission Fitness Center. I have served on the Honor Council for the past 3 years and am also involved in Order of Omega, Lambda Pi Eta and University Ministry. I spent the Fall Semester of my Junior year in Madrid, Spain and hope for the opportunity to continue to travel after graduation.

My goal as Director of Academics is to make students more aware of our academic integrity policies. I hope to create a campus environment centered on academic excellence through increased relations between our faculty and students as well as fun and educational programming. I also hope to spread awareness of all the available undergraduate research grant funding Associated Students provides to further student research. If you have any questions or suggestions, or just want to share your ideas, please do not hesitate to email me or stop by my office hours.



As a student and member of the University of San Diego community, I acknowledge and pledge the following:

"I pledge to demonstrate personal and academic integrity in all matters with my fellow students, the faculty, and the administration here at USD. I promise to be honest and accountable for my actions; and to uphold the stature of scholastic honesty to better myself and those around me."
