Student Support Services advisors develop student-centered relationships with program participants. We provide holistic support that complements the role of faculty advisors and other campus services. We encourage and facilitate the development of the skills and behaviors needed by students for success through regular, individualized programming. For more information regarding our advising relationship with students, please view our advising syllabus.
Student Support Services advisors send midterm evaluations to their advisees’ instructors each fall and spring semester. Advisors share these evaluations with students and discuss strategies to improve academic performance. Note that on the midterm form, we invite instructors to let us know if they would like us to contact them regarding the student.
Any faculty member who has a concern about a student, but does not know where to direct it, is invited to contact a Student Support Services advisor. We will share resources that could assist you in effectively and efficiently meeting the needs of your student. Do not feel you need to have knowledge about a student's eligibility to refer them to the program. All students referred to our office will be connected to an appropriate source of support.
