The Council shall be composed of a Head Advisor or designated representative from each academic college and one or more representatives from each service unit involved in advising undergraduate students, and a student representative. Each of the academic colleges and the service units represented shall have one vote on the council. A change in the Standing Rules is required to add or delete a voting member.

The Chair and Secretary shall be chosen by the Council in a manner to be determined by that body.

The immediate past chair of AAC shall participate on the Faculty Recognition and Awards Committee in selecting the recipient of the Dar Reese Excellence in Advising and the OSU Academic Advising Award and shall be a liaison member of the Curriculum Council.
