Faculty Advisors can assist you with questions connected to your specialization (i.e. major or minor). They focus on subject-related issues and advice, and can coach you through choosing electives

Career Advising

Career Advisors in the Experiential Learning Hub offer free 30-minute sessions that can cover a variety of career-related topics such as career indecision, personal self-assessment, and further education planning.

A Career Advisor is also available through Student Accessibility Services (SAS) once per week to act as a resource to help with job search strategies, talk about disclosure in the employment process, and explore career directions.
