The Undergraduate/Undeclared (U/U) Advising Program at the University of California, Irvine (UCI), seeks to empower and impact students throughout their undergraduate experience and serve as a model for undeclared/exploratory advising programs.
The mission of the Undergraduate/Undeclared Advising Program is to assist students without a declared major or in transition between majors with the development and implementation of well-informed decisions about their academic, career, and life goals by providing effective, individualized academic advising.
The U/U Advising Program achieves this mission through the accomplishment of the following goals:
- Discover and implement evidence-based advising practices to improve student learning, development, and success.
- Foster educational success for U/U’s diverse student populations.
- Guide students into successful paths from matriculation into an academic major through to graduation.
- Provide effective academic advising to undergraduate students at UCI.
