Oklahoma Academic Advising Association



Our Mission

Helping Advisors Become Their Best Since 1992

The purpose of the Oklahoma Academic Advising Association is to gain recognition for academic advising and to support the development and professional growth of academic advisors in higher education in Oklahoma. OACADA serves a constituency which includes academic advisors, counselors, faculty members, administrators, and others in academic and student affairs concerned with the intellectual, personal, and vocational needs of students. OACADA is the representative and advocate of academic advisors in both public and private institutions and is a forum for discussion, debate, and the exchange of ideas.

The official bylaws were most recently updated June 3, 2019.
