Advising Resources

 

Faculty Advising Goals

Your primary goal as a faculty advisor is to support and advise your student-advisees in ways that will help them minimize the number of “bumps” they experience on their journey (failed classes, professionalism issues, being sent to the Student Performance Committee, etc.), and to help those who hit bumps successfully navigate through them. We also encourage you to offer overall support/mentorship to your student-advisees.
