Professional Academic Advising

Academic Advising Mission

The mission of the Professional Academic Advising team at Ashland University is to support students through their college transition and help create academic plans that promote educational, professional, and personal development within a collaborative environment.

Vision and Values

We believe that all undergraduates at Ashland University have the strengths and skills necessary to succeed.
We empower students to become self-directed learners and decision makers.
We value  each student's unique history and path to self discovery.
We expect  students to take responsibilty  for their academic choices and growth.
