Academic Advising & Exploration Center

Mission and Goals

Mission Statement

The Academic Advising & Exploration Center (AAEC) provides intrusive and developmental academic advising to assist students with their transition to college and their development of an educational plan consistent with their personal values, interests and abilities.

Advising Philosophy

Advising is most effective when it is viewed as an ongoing process in which the students and the advisors work as partners. Students must continuously work with their advisors in order to develop comprehensive academic plans that lead to successful career planning.

Ultimately, students have the responsibility for their own educational plans and for monitoring all requirements for graduation.

Learning Outcomes

The AAEC's academic advising learning outcomes are things the university expects you to know and be able to do as a result of your participation in the advising experience.
