The Office of Academic Advising

The Office of Academic Advising, a unit within Undergraduate Education, brings together academic advisors from throughout campus into a collegial community and professional network.  We strive to continuously improve the academic advising experience for undergraduate students at UC Davis through communication, strategic planning, and ongoing educational and professional development opportunities for advisors.


The Office of Academic Advising engages and supports the academic advising community in building agency and capacity to implement comprehensive, intentional, and evidence-based advising practices that empower undergraduate students to develop self-awareness, self-accountability, and self-actualization.

Unit Goals
  • Promote equitable student learning practices via information guidance intellectual mentorship, and developmental relationships to strengthen students’ preparedness to approach immediate and future challenges.
  • Offer and support advisor learning opportunities to increase advisors’ capacity to implement strategies and approaches that enhance student development.
  • Advocate for academic advising processes, organization, and resources that contribute to student success.
