Academic advising is an ongoing process that engages students in educational planning consistent with their academic interests as well as with their personal, intellectual, and career goals. This student-centered advising process involves an active partnership among students, professional academic advisors, and Undergraduate Program Advisors who are faculty in their departments.
Office of Student Academic Affairs
Located in 180 Renaissance Park, the Office of Student Academic Affairs is a central place where undergraduate students in CSSH can go with all academic questions. This office is a good first place to go for any kind of academic concern.
Academic advisors provide general guidance on academic matters and assist students in their progress from orientation through graduation. Located in each academic department, undergraduate program directors mentor students and function as the student’s main connection with the major.
The CSSH Office of Student Academic Affairs is committed to providing students with the assistance they need to attain academic success.
