Advisory Council on Academic Planning and Advising

The Advisory Council on Academic Planning and Advising is responsible for providing input, guidance, and feedback for the college-wide Quality Enhancement Plan, GPS for Success. GPS for Success provides a consistent and comprehensive academic advising experience for first-time-to-college NOVA students who are recent high school graduates. The Advisory Council provides a forum to address concerns raised in the implementation process, helps ensure consistency across the College, and recommends solutions that support the goals of the initiative. The Advisory Council works with the Office of Institutional Research to ensure that the process and student learning outcomes are being properly assessed per QEP and the response to the Report of the Reaffirmation Committee.
