In addition to serving students, we have opportunities for currently enrolled students to get involved in the work of the Academic Advising Center. Here are three ways that current students can get involved:

Opportunities for Student Involvement

The College Transition program employs 22 Workshop Leaders who work with first-year students enrolled in the College Transition program during the fall semesters.

More about becoming a Workshop Leader

The Academic Advising Center works closely with the Student Advisory Board (SAB), who act as consultants as the AAC reviews policies and initiatives related to student success and inclusion in the AAC; AAC procedures; and the AAC's mission, vision, and goals.  The SAB's contributions ensure that that the student perspective is represented in AAC decision-making. 

The Student Advisory Board for 2023-2024 has been selected.   More information about the selection process for 2024-2025 will be posted as we approach the start of Fall 2024 semester.

For Fall 2023, the advisory board will meet Fridays from 3 pm – 4 pm in-person at C 230 PC on the following days: September 29,  October 20, November 10, and December 8.

The Board is Chaired by Maureen Schafer, Assistant Provost of Enrollment Management and Director of the AAC, with help from Jayne Machak, Associate Director of Student Support and Success Initiatives.
