How the Academic Advising Center serves students.
The University of Iowa Academic Advising Center is committed to a diverse learning environment that enables student, staff, and faculty to become active leaders and citizens in an increasingly complex world. The Center fully supports the Iowa Promise, the University’s strategic plan to promote “excellence in education” by creating a welcoming climate for underrepresented students, staff, and faculty; lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons; non-traditional and international students, and persons with disabilities. Our staff is committed to culturally competent practice that enhances the educational and work environment for all members of The University of Iowa community.

Student engagement in productive learning, inside and outside the classroom, is a critical factor in student success. The Academic Advising Center promotes student-faculty interaction, engagement in service learning, a respect for diverse learning styles, high expectations for students, and student-to-student cooperation for a supportive and rewarding educational environment. At The University of Iowa, there are numerous opportunities for meaningful engagement through the Community-Based Learning Program; student-led service organizations such as Dance Marathon and The 10,000 Hours Show; and service learning courses.
