Advising Announcements  

Mission

Academic advisors partner with each student to provide assistance on their academic journey. Our goal is to advocate for student success, retention and graduation by establishing purposeful academic relationships. We promote a collaborative model of advising that will equip and challenge students to develop a personalized, practical and appropriate educational plan. A productive advising partnership will enable students to envision, foster and build a foundation to work towards their academic and professional goals. 

For additional information on student milestones and recommendations, please reference our advising syllabus.
