Action Plan

APC will realize our mission by carrying out the following:

1) Collect information regarding majors comprehensively across campus and provide students with accurate and current information

2) Give students opportunities to reflect on their academic history in order to improve their academic planning

3) Work in partnership with faculty and staff in order to support students’ academic success

4) Keep abreast of the latest theories and practices and acquire advanced knowledge of academic advising

5) Disseminate knowledge about academic advising on campus and improve our support of faculty as well as students

6) Evaluate and assess what we offer for continuous improvement

Although we do not replace faculty advising, we are here to supplement their advice and help students find their way to become a self-directed "intentional learner".
