Academic Advising Council


About the Academic Advising Council (AAC)

The UNCW Academic Advisory Council was created to connect and collaborate with academic advisors campus wide.  The academic advising community at UNCW includes professional and faculty advisors that are focused on student success and advancing the advising profession.  By working together, UNCW's academic advising community will be able to accomplish the following goals:

  • Create a common advising experience for all students
  • Provide insight on the creation and implementation of policies and procedures that impact holistic academic advising practices to promote persistence, retention, and student success
  • Share best practices and strategies in the field of advising
  • Create a platform for professional development opportunities
  • Serve as the collective voice to provide information and opinions to key University Administrative Offices
  • Provide networking, training, and recognition opportunities for the academic advising community
