Value Statement

We believe that the academic advising services we deliver provide a foundation for academic and personal success. Through our interactions with students, we want to build not only a broad knowledge base of college and curricular information but also critical thinking skills and a sense of personal responsibility for their own success. Our advisors have a strong desire to see each student succeed, and we are dedicated to providing the services, support and encouragement to assist the student in achieving his/her goals. Tough decisions sometimes need to be made along any path in life, including the academic path, but we believe with the right combination of personal accountability, assistance and advising services, any student can attain the goals they set forth to positively impact their lives.
