Strong advising helps students identify their academic and personal goals and develop a plan that integrates classroom and co-curricular experiences to achieve those goals. The Academic Advising Center (AAC) is focused on helping students as they identify and articulate these goals during their first two years at Duke. As director of the AAC, I am pleased to provide an overview of advising at Duke and familiarize you with the advising resources that can enhance your student’s time at Duke.
Because Duke offers so many academic and co-curricular opportunities, no student can be adequately advised by a single individual. That is why we have a network of advisors to support students and why we encourage students to connect with multiple members of their advising network. The key players for each student are described below.
