Resources for Advisors


This page brings together advising resources that are shared with advisors at the annual advising workshop, during faculty development events, faculty meetings, and at other events throughout the year.



Student Learning Goals for Advising

Students will identify College resources, including their academic advisors, and external resources for expanding the variety of their college experiences and addressing problems that invariably arise.

Students will develop basic familiarity with College graduation requirements so that they can contrast various academic pathways open to them and chart an academic agenda from both short and long term perspectives.

Students will analyze their academic interests and motives, scholastic strengths and weaknesses, and lifelong ambitions with the aim of selecting courses, majors and minors, and other special opportunities to enhance their educations.

Students will engage in intentional planning and reflection to construct individualized educational plans that articulate personal and scholastic goals and analyze how their academic choices can help them achieve these goals.

Students will formulate strategies for navigating life after graduation with autonomy and purpose.
