Advisement Philosophy and Plan
I believe that successful advisement should create a comfortable and supportive atmosphere with students in order to provide them with the tools to achieve their professional and career objectives.
As an academic advisor, my goals are to:
- Understand and make understand. I try to understand the students’ needs, personal reality, and career goals so that I can make them understand their career paths and choices.
- Provide structure to their academic plans for students to realize that their degrees are more than an accumulation of courses. There is a meaning behind all choices they must make.
- Help navigating the often complicated curriculum of required, electives, general education or degree-specific courses.
- Make possible that students reach their potential. If advising is meaningful and successful, students will be able to focus all their energy in fulfilling their ambitions.
