Academic Advising

UAC Committees

The UAC instituted three advisor committees following the results of a climate survey distributed to Undergraduate Academic Advisors in the fall of 2019. The results of the survey pointed to advisor interest in having a greater voice including in advisor training and professional development, and advisor engagement and recognition.

Social Engagement and Advisor Recognition Committee

The UAA Social Engagement Committee plans and facilitates opportunities to enhance community among the UAA team. They also aid in promoting advisor and UAC recognition.
