Academic Advising Mission
At the University of Washington, academic advising is a core element of the University's focus on undergraduate student learning. As educators, advisers partner with faculty and the campus community to cultivate our students' intellectual development. As guides and advocates, advisers collaborate with students to craft a transformative educational experience so that they may become informed, articulate and thoughtful students of the University and citizens of the world.
The Undergraduate Academic Advising Council is a University of Washington Seattle advisory committee convened by the Vice Provost and Dean of Undergraduate Academic Affairs. The Council is chaired by the Vice Provost/Dean and is composed of undergraduate academic advisers from a broad spectrum of advising units.
