Academic Advising

Commitment to each of our students

“When we talk about academic continuity, what we really mean is our dedication to each student being able to continue along their path toward graduation without any delays or detours. Ensuring this will take the collaborative effort from all of us. It is essential that we communicate often with our students so as to build the resilient community that we seek. Only faculty have the authentic, credible voice that can personalize this message in a way that will resonate with students.”

–Patrick Phillips, Provost and Senior Vice President
