 Academic Affairs Council

The AAC saves the day …

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

The AAC is the academic student body of RASA. The AAC consists of five students who represent University College Roosevelt students in academic matters. 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). In the BoS, academic policies are discussed and decisions concerning academic matters are made.

The AAC provides information to students about the courses, study abroad and any policy changes implemented by the BoS. 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, AAC contributes to the unique atmosphere at UCR.

More information about the AAC can be found on the RASA website

If you, as a prospective student, have any questions about academic matters, please contact AAC at

Hello everyone, I am Hitanshi Shah and I am the Vice Chair of the AAC for the 2016-2017 academic year. Being the Vice chair gives me responsibility of various tasks and projects by helping out my board members, attending Board of Studies meetings with Steven, managing the mailbox, taking the minutes during our board meetings and making sure our board year goes smoothly.

Hi everyone! I am Céline Budding and I am the Student Advisor of the Academic Affairs Council 2016-2017. An important part of my role as student advisor is helping out with all questions and complaints you might have regarding your academics at UCR. However, I also write the student newsletters that you will get in your mailbox every week, as well as the newsletters for faculty, so you’re always updated on important matters and opportunities. Lastly, together with the External Officer I am responsible for the publication of the AAC guides. If you have any questions, problems, or suggestions, please don’t hesitate to approach me in person, via Facebook or via email!


Hey guys, I'm Jelma Bil, the Internal Officer of the Academic Affairs Council 2016-2017. This means I have two main tasks, organizing all the events by the AAC and managing the Facebook page. The events range from serious ones, like the Future Fair, to info sessions to fun events, like FASST. Managing the Facebook page means I will keep you up to date with what we are doing and what your opportunities are as a student. If you have any questions about my tasks, or me, do not hesitate to approach me via Facebook, email, or in person.
