At the heart of our mission is the principle that academic advising is integral to the enterprise of teaching, understanding oneself, and actualizing learning goals while in pursuit of an advanced education and degree. We believe that strong advising structures support and enhance students’ educational pathways and academic experiences while fostering educational engagement in preparation for roles and responsibilities in a global citizenry. Through its many programs, services, outreach efforts, and initiatives, the contributions and assessed outcomes of the Academic Advising Center (AAC) at Queens College reinforces the role of advising in student achievement and retention, thereby supporting the institutional mission and vitality of the College, and the future academic and personal successes of its students.Read more ...

This includes encouragement to explore the world through a broad range of courses with a global focus; studying various areas of knowledge from diverse perspectives; and becoming familiar with new ways of understanding the world for the development of one’s possibilities and contributions therein — “Discimus ut Serviamus: We learn so that we may serve.”
In doing so, advisors embrace ideologies and pragmatics in highlighting degree requirements, policies & procedures, campus services, student life, and educational opportunities that extend beyond classroom learning and beyond the receipt of the baccalaureate degree.

The Center serves as a support system for the student body and the academic programs and management of the institution by ensuring clarity, uniformity, and informational accessibility of college-wide academic, procedural and experiential information that is introduced upon students’ entry and supported centrally through graduation. The AAC provides the College’s centralized and integrated academic advising services to incoming and continuing undergraduate students to foster timely and successful receipt of the baccalaureate degree....Hide
