Our purpose is to provide collaborative, mentoring relationships which promote educational, career, and professional development.

We value a student-centered, holistic, and ethical approach based on strong partnerships with students, faculty and staff, and the larger campus community. We are committed to creating a respectful and supportive environment. We encourage students to be self-reliant through informed decisions and choices based upon dissemination of accurate information. We value our own continuous professional development to enhance the quality of the advising experience.
