The committee works actively to support the work of the OUA by offering representative perspectives on OUA initiatives, provides a forum for sharing information about academic and career advising, and also works toward building community among advisors from different schools, colleges, and divisions.
The Council on Academic Advising uses a co-chair model, with the Associate Director for Academic Affairs serving as a liaison. Meetings generally consist of three segments: community building, feedback and action.
CAA meets once per month during the academic year for 90 minutes, and once during the summer.

CAA is a committee which invites wide representation of campus advisors and advising partners. In general (but not in all cases) members are mid-level leaders in their departments (such as an assistant or associate director).
Members are invited to join a Power Team each academic year to focus more intensively on a specific campus advising project. Power Teams are facilitated by CAA members and are responsible for producing a brief report on their outcomes.
To indicate your interest in joining CAA, please take the OUA Committee Interest Survey.
