Our Promise to You:

The Office of Academic Advising promotes academic wellness and fosters student growth. Our advisors encourage students to develop the curiosity, courage, and confidence needed to navigate their educational journey.

Our professional staff members use an evidence-based advising framework to help students develop self-awareness as they reflect on their academic interests, priorities, and future life goals. Decades of research has established that academic advising is a high impact practice that helps students stay focused, leading to on-time graduation.

Our work is particularly guided by the Developmental Advising Model, which considers the whole student as they travel through each developmental stage of life. Late adolescence and early adulthood are crucial times for emotional and social development. Often, this is the first time a student is living away from home, when they first develop a sense of independence and begin to engage with adult responsibilities. This is a stage where students can begin to use future-oriented thinking, make long-range plans and goals, wonder: “What do I want to do with my life?”

Through this holistic developmental lens, our advisors do more than simply provide information about the course schedule or lead students to an appropriate form; our advisors serve as a bridge between students, the campus community, and beyond to help them thrive, connect, and engage.
