KU Advising Network
The KU Advising Network (KUAN) is a communication and professional development body. Membership is open to anyone who advises undergraduate students in any capacity at KU. The network was developed with the idea of serving our students better when we as an advising community work together through strategic information-sharing mechanisms. KUAN is supported by the Undergraduate Advising Executive Committee (UAEC) and the Office of Undergraduate Studies.
Undergraduate Advising Executive Committee
The overarching mission of the Undergraduate Advising Executive Committee (UAEC) is to facilitate discussions of policy and procedure for advising practices across campus in order to foster a seamless advising experience for students. The UAEC also facilitates communication between advising units aimed at creating a more cohesive undergraduate advising community in an effort to best serve our students. The UAEC is sponsored by the Office of Undergraduate Studies. The UAEC charter was developed and approved by all UAEC members in early 2015.
Membership is made up of one member from each school or college that offers an undergraduate degree. These members are appointed by their Deans to serve on the UAEC. The Chair of the committee is elected each year by UAEC members. We maintain regular communication with the Vice Provost of Undergraduate Studies. The UAEC has been recognized and endorsed by the Provost’s Office and the deans of all schools and the College. This support and buy-in is essential to the viability and authority of this body.
