Purpose of Academic Advising

Faculty, administrators and professional staff on this campus consider advising both a responsibility and an opportunity for enriching and enhancing each student's pattern of learning and personal development. Central to the mission of academic advising at the university is teaching students to understand the purpose of the curriculum and fostering their intellectual and personal development toward academic success and lifelong learning. Through individual, collaborative relationships with academic advisors, students are best able to define and implement sound educational plans that are consistent with their personal values, goals, and career plans.
