Academic Advising Goals

  • Encourage students’ academic, career and transfer planning through an inclusive and supportive environment.
  • Provide students with accurate information and resources so that students may navigate matriculation into college and their college experience appropriately with the ultimate goal of a college degree.
  • Promote personal responsibility in guiding students to achieve their goals, understand the relevance of higher education and value academic success.
  • Utilize both technology and mutually respectful personal relationships to assist students with appropriate educational planning.
