The Student Affairs Office (SAO) is staffed by nine professionals and several peer advisors
who are committed to the success of our students, guiding them through important milestones and encouraging their timely progress to graduation.

In a typical year, SAO has approximately 3,600 advising contacts with undergraduates and 1,200 with graduate students.

Additionally, SAO hosts numerous special events for prospective and current students, fosters
student leadership and campus involvement, and encourages community among School faculty and student scholars.

These efforts contribute to the School’s goals of attracting, retaining and graduating students whose accomplishments while at UCI – and later – reflect the quality and scope of their Bren School of ICS education.

at different points in their educational progress.

From programs for newly admitted students to those who are about to graduate, the aim is to provide information, facilitate networking and build community. The SAO staff also provided administrative support to the Associate Dean for Student Affairs in curriculum review and development.
