Who We Are
”Academic advising is arguably one of the most critical functional areas in all of higher education. It is the primary touch point where students access information, resources, and tools to navigate successfully through college.
It is where students learn the rules of this culture—what a credit hour is, how many credits each course carries, the number of credits required for a major, minor, or (ultimately) graduation.
Academic advising is where students go for advise about their futures, their paths to purposeful lives, and their progress through college."
