Athletic Academic Center
Harris Hall 1st Floor
The Athletic Academic Center (AAC), located on the lower level of Harris Dining Hall, provides services and resources that aid student-athletes in maintaining excellence both in the classroom and on the playing field. The AAC staff strives to ensure the fulfillment of all five components of the program: academic excellence, athletic excellence, community service, career development, and personal development.
The AAC, open six days a week, houses a computer lab, a learning lab, individual tutoring rooms, areas for both individual and group study, and offices for the AAC staff. The AAC is staffed by an Assistant Dean and Director, an Associate Director, a Life Skills coordinator, three student development specialists, an administrative assistant and four graduate students who serve as liaisons between the Athletic Department, college academic advising centers and academic departments, and the administrative units of the University. In coordination with the Assistant Athletic Director for Compliance and the Athletic Certification Officer, the AAC staff also monitors academic eligibility and ensures that all athletes are maintaining satisfactory GPA and progress toward their degrees.
