The Office of Academic Advising supports and complements the academic missions of BRAC University by providing campus services and resources that enrich the overall student experience and learning environment. The Office collaborates with students, faculty, staff, alumni, and parents in the design and delivery of key services and support to students, faculty, and academic departments.
The Office of Academic Advising offers a variety of programs and services dedicated to the intellectual, social, psychological, ethical, and professional development and wellbeing of all BRAC University students, and to the direct support of faculty in pursuit of the university’s mission. These include the first year advising programs, orientation programs, career and internship services, co-curricular and club activities, personal and social counseling, and teaching and learning support. The common thread that binds all the Offices of Academic Advising is a commitment to provide an engaging and active learning environment that enhance the personal growth of all students, and complement BRAC University’s commitment to academic excellence.
The mission of the office is guided by two principles: to support BRAC University’s commitment to the highest academic standards of scholarship, teaching and mentoring of all students, and to enhance the quality of campus life for students – both in and out of the classroom.
