The Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Studies
The Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Studies acts to support and enhance undergraduate education at AUC, through administration of the Core Curriculum, the Academic Advising Center, Community Based Learning (CBL) and Undergraduate Research, as well as through facilitating the development of new Freshman Year, Bridge and Honors programs. Focusing on non-declared students and working as well in close collaboration with the deans, faculty and staff of the Schools, the office seeks to further the integration and coordination of teaching and learning across the curriculum, pertinent registration and student petition issues, and related University policies and procedures - and to serve overall as an advocate for undergraduate students and studies at AUC.
The courses are based on the principles of cross-cultural dialogue, incorporating various engaging mediums such as videoconferencing technologies. The courses give the students the opportunity to explore the dialogue process with counter-partners from around the globe, discussing topics that range from current local events to a wide variety of global socioeconomic, political and cultural issues.
Undergraduate Research Program (UGR)
The Undergraduate Research Program institutionalizes, supports and expands opportunities for undergraduate student research, entrepreneurship and creative achievement. It nurtures amongst the academic community, across the disciplines, a culture of research and development, and the drive to advance the liberal education outcomes of undergraduate inquiry and critical and creative competence.
Among other programs and services, the Program adminsters a conference and mini-grant program for undergraduate researchers and hosts the yearly EURECA conference featuring student research and creative work.
