Vision, Mission, and Goals

Our Vision

The Academic Advising Resource Center (AARC) aspires to promote student success through a positive environment that supports excellence in holistic and developmental advising focused on student-learning and engagement, as well as a commitment to a thriving student experience at the University of Richmond.

Our Mission

The mission of the AARC is to support students by connecting them with a guide, an academic advisor, to help them navigate their academic experience. Academic advisors serve as a main point of contact at the university to explain academic policies and procedures, connect students to resources, and help students with challenges when they arise. Additionally, the AARC supports advisors in establishing strong advising relationships that empower students by helping them explore and develop plans toward academic and career goals, identify opportunities to grow as learners, engage as active community members, and embrace the value of a liberal arts education.

Our Goals

The AARC, in partnership with the campus community, aims to support the University of Richmond's commitment to the inclusive and holistic development of students as diverse learners, engaged community members, and responsible leaders.
