UC Davis Principles of Community

The University of California, Davis, is first and foremost an institution of learning and teaching, committed to serving the needs of society. Our campus community reflects and is a part of a society comprising all races, creeds, and social circumstances. The successful conduct of the university's affairs requires that every member of the university community acknowledge and practice the following basic principles:

We affirm the inherent dignity in all of us, and we strive to maintain a climate of justice marked by respect for each other. We acknowledge that our society carries within it historical and deep-rooted misunderstandings and biases, and therefore we will endeavor to foster mutual understanding among the many parts of our whole.

We affirm the right of freedom of expression within our community and also affirm our commitment to the highest standards of civility and decency toward all. We recognize the right of every individual to think and speak as dictated by personal belief, to express any idea, and to disagree with or counter another's point of view, limited only by university regulations governing time, place, and manner. We promote open expression of our individuality and our diversity within the bounds of courtesy, sensitivity, and respect.

We confront and reject all manifestations of discrimination, including those based on race, ethnicity, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, religious or political beliefs, status within or outside the university, or any of the other differences among people which have been excuses for misunderstanding, dissension, or hatred. We recognize and cherish the richness contributed to our lives by our diversity. We take pride in our various achievements and we celebrate our differences.

We recognize that each of us has an obligation to the community of which we have chosen to be a part. We will strive to build a true community of spirit and purpose based on mutual respect and caring.

Student-Athlete Academic Services

On behalf of the Student-Athlete Academic Services staff, welcome to the 2013-14 academic year! Whether you're a freshman, a transfer, or a returning student-athlete, we look forward to working with you as you pursue your academic and athletic goals at UC Davis.

Student-Athlete Academic Services, located in 264 Hickey Gym, is an important resource for intercollegiate student-athletes. The office is open 8:00-5:00 Monday through Friday including over the lunch hour. The main phone is (530) 752-1111 and fax is (530) 752-6681.

Student-athletes at UC Davis typically have a minimum of three academic advisors: an athletic academic advisor assigned by sport, a college advisor, and a major advisor (if the student has a declared major). The athletic academic advisors work with the student-athletes on their assigned teams from the time that they arrive on campus until they graduate from UC Davis.

 

APPOINTMENTS
Meeting regularly in appointments with your athletic academic advisor is the best way to maximize your academic experience while also meeting all NCAA, Big West Conference, and UC Davis rules for athletic eligibility and academic progress. To make an appointment with your athletic academic advisor please use the online appointment system. Appointments can be scheduled up to 3 weeks in advance with the calendar rolling out on a continual basis.   Walk-in hours are listed on the calendar as "OH" (office hours). If your advisor's calendar shows "NA" (not available), it means that s/he is already scheduled in another meeting or appointment at that time." During a 60-minute appointment, we might discuss choosing a major or minor, adjustment to college, scheduling classes, calculating the number of allowable electives for athletic eligibility, preparation for graduate programs, study abroad, taking summer classes at a community college near home, mentoring for national awards and scholarships, and other athletic eligibility rules specific to the individual student-athlete's academic history.

New freshmen and transfers are strongly encouraged to do one appointment per quarter during their first year at UC Davis. New student-athletes may especially want to do an appointment in early October for assistance preparing the first Academic Plan Form (APF). Returning student-athletes are encouraged to do appointments as necessary with a minimum of one appointment per year.

 

WALK-IN HOURS
Each athletic academic advisor has walk-in hours daily for brief questions or concerns. Walk-in is limited to 10-15 minutes on a first-come first-served basis.

 

OTHER WAYS TO CONTACT YOUR ADVISOR
If you need assistance and are unable to reach your athletic academic advisor in person, remember that you may also leave a voice mail message, send an e-mail, or drop off a note for your athletic academic advisor in 264 Hickey.
