The Academic Advising Center is dedicated to the academic success of AUK students. AAC advisors empower students to take an active role in their own education by guiding them to a deeper under- standing of the liberal arts curriculum. The AAC provides academic advising, educational planning, course selection, retention initiatives, and registration to all currently undeclared students. Academic advising is a shared responsibility and planning process in which an advisor serves as a mentor/ teacher aiming to enhance the student’s self-awareness, personal responsibility, and ability to define, develop, and reach academic and educational goals that are consistent with the student’s personal interests. Students meet with AAC advisors to discuss their educational plans and progress, and identify the academic requirements to achieve their career goals. The AAC consistently provides accurate information, in-depth and holistic advising support, and appropriate referrals to all other University resources.
