The name of this association shall be the University of Cincinnati Undergraduate Academic Advising Association. The official acronym shall be UCUAADA.
Academic Advising is an interactive process in which the advisor assists students in setting and achieving academic, social, and personal goals that are consistent with their interests, values, abilities, degree requirements, and career expectations. Advisors provide a wide range of information to students and may refer them to other appropriate campus resources. Advisors create a supportive environment in which they may challenge students to take responsibility for making appropriate academic and career decisions. Advising is personalized to consider the particular needs of each student. Effective academic advising has been shown to have a positive effect on student success, retention and timely degree completion.
The University of Cincinnati Undergraduate Academic Advising Association (UCUAADA) was formed in 1988 to provide communication links and information sharing among those involved in academic advising. The group represents all colleges and offices concerned with advising and is committed to implementing ideas and programs to strengthen advising.
