About Us


Through collaboration and academic guidance, the Academic Advising Center fosters a developmental process of assisting undergraduate students in clarifying and achieving their personal, professional, and educational goals.

Value Statements:

  • Advocacy:  We champion others by modeling and encouraging persistence through challenges and identifying tools to navigate systems of higher education.  
  • Excellence:  We go above and beyond to deliver quality service that anticipates and responds to campus community needs. 
  • Passion:  We demonstrate motivation to assist students in the pursuit of academic success, holistic development, and wellness.  
  • Community : We perform work as part of an inter-connected ecosystem of educators that strive to prepare students to be leaders and meet their own needs as well as those of their communities.
  • Inclusivity: We promote equity through understanding, respect, and celebration of the varied cultural, economic, and personal experiences that our campus community brings. We continually strive to be mindful of the impact of our actions on all members of our campus community.   
  • Growth:  We nurture positive development and constructive learning experiences in our students and professional staff alike.  
  • Encouragement : We lift and inspire others to achieve their potential, with compassion.
  • Empathy:  We seek to listen, learn, and understand -- to the best of our abilities -- and offer appropriate support to every student that we serve.  
  • Innovation:  We are at the cutting edge of academic advising by leveraging technology to discover student-centered solutions.  
  • Integrity : We contribute to a culture of mutual trust, ethical responsibility, accountability, and honoring self-worth.
