Meet the Board
2020-2021
Hi, I'm Fleur and I'm the Board of Studies representative and chair of the AAC for the academic year 2020-2021. The BoS is an executive board, chaired by the Director of Education, that is involved in the planning and organizing of education at UCR by looking at policy and curriculum development, internal evaluations and the annual educational report. I'm a member so I can offer a student opinion on the matters at hand.
As chair of the AAC it is my job to help the rest of the board where necessary and ensure we are doing everything in our power to represent the student body of UCR and keep academics running as smoothly as possible. If you have any suggestions, ideas, concerns, etc. regarding academics at UCR, feel free to contact me via email, facebook, or have a chat in person in Elliott, Eleanor, Koestraat or wherever you see me!

We're more than happy to help.

The AAC saves the day...
… by handling your complaints, monitoring academic standards, representing you as an intricate part of UCR, and with helping you reach your full academic potential.

The AAC is the academic student board at UCR and consists of seven students who represent University College Roosevelt students in academic matters, as well as in UCR governance. The AAC is an intermediary between students and UCR. One of the most important tasks of the AAC is the representation of students in the Board of Studies (BoS), the Program Committee (PC), and the UCR Council, in which the AAC is involved in educational policy, safeguarding the quality of education, and UCR's plans and policies.

The AAC provides information to students about the courses, study abroad and any policy changes implemented by the governance bodies. The AAC also provides UCR faculty with students' feedback and queries about courses, tracks or the academic environment at UCR.

In cases where this is needed, the AAC can mediate between students and faculty. Many academic grievances can be resolved through meetings with the student(s) and instructor involved. In this way, the AAC contributes to the unique atmosphere at UCR. Keeping the environment healthy, positive and educational for all.
