For Faculty

Advising is a teaching process that takes place outside the classroom. It addresses the student's entire undergraduate experience. Quality advisement must be based on the shared responsibility of the student and their academic advisor. Advisors serve as mentors, role models and career guides through their unique position as the coordinator of the undergraduate experience. Good advisors help students to realize the maximum benefits available to them and how to best obtain a quality and well-rounded educational experience.
