Academic Advising Coordinating Council
UGA’s Undergraduate Academic Advising Coordinating Council (AACC) is comprised of faculty and staff representatives of every undergraduate school/college, plus representatives of the Honors Program, Undergraduate Admissions, Registrar’s Office, Career Center and Student Affairs, who are charged with the broad task of improving academic advising services for undergraduate students.
The AACC provides leadership and support to faculty and professional academic advisors through best practices in training, mentoring, research, and evaluation.
Academic Advising Mission Statement
The University of Georgia’s mandatory undergraduate academic advisement programs are an essential part of the undergraduate educational experience which empower students to attain their academic goals.
Faculty and professional academic advisors of the University of Georgia will help undergraduate students understand the options and opportunities for academic programs of study, degree requirements, academic resources, and course selection. Academic advisors will engage students in meaningful relationships designed to support and encourage a challenging and successful undergraduate education. Students will prepare for and participate fully in their advising experience.
Ultimately each undergraduate student is responsible for his/her academic progress at the University of Georgia; advisors cannot provide a guarantee of graduation and/or certification within a specified period of time. The Academic Advising Coordinating Council will provide leadership and support to faculty and professional academic advisors through best practices in training, mentoring, research, and evaluation.
