I would like to extend a warm welcome to all students to the Division of Student Affairs at AUK.
Engagement and participation in extracurricular activities, day-to-day events, and campus life are important aspects of your university experience. This is precisely the mission of the Division of Student Affairs.
The Office of the Dean of Student Affairs (DSA) oversees the following offices—Academic Advising Center (AAC), Office of Student Life, and Counseling Center. The Dean's Office strives to provide students with all the tools and support they need to achieve overall success and well-being throughout their university experience.
The Academic Advising Center (AAC) is committed to students' academic success. AAC advisors empower students to take an active role in their education by guiding students to a deeper understanding of the liberal arts curriculum. The AAC offers academic advising, educational planning, course selection, retention initiatives, and assistance with registration to undeclared students.
The Counseling Center (CC) is concerned with students' well-being as they navigate their AUK experience. The Center ensures the availability of adequate resources that ensure AUK students’ physical and mental health byproviding personal counseling, disability accommodations, coaching, therapy sessions and opportunities, and adequate clinical support for minor illnesses and injuries.
The Office of Student Life (SL) is critical in developing a community of diverse critical thinkers and competent leaders who will continue to pursue lifelong learning. Student Life offers programs, services, and opportunities that encourage students to participate in meaningful activities outside of the classroom.
We invite you to visit the Division of Student Affairs to become acquainted with our departments, activities, and events and learn about the many resources available to you. Our Student Affairs staff are trained professionals who are here to help you throughout your time on campus.
I welcome you to AUK on behalf of the Division of Student Affairs and look forward to meeting you and being a part of your university journey!
Hala Al Abdulrazzaq,
Dean of Student Affairs
