Advising Committees

Academic Advising Strategic Planning Committee

The Administrative Council for Academic Advising (ACAA) is a representative group of associate deans, academic advisors, and academic advising administrators who serve as the vetting and approval committee for recommendations from the University Academic Advising Council, the Academic Advisor Professional Development Committee, and the Advisory Board for Cross-Curricula Advising. This group will also adopt two or three long-term projects each year to support the continuous improvement of advising at NC State. The ultimate goal of the ACAA is to vet and advocate for the implementation of advising policy and processes that build and sustain a consistent advising experience for undergraduate students.
