Aims of the Faculty Advisor Program

  • Build longitudinal relationships among students and faculty advisors
  • Build peer communities that foster reflection and growth
  • Facilitate students in meeting their academic and career development needs
  • Facilitate students' personal and professional development through:
    • Helping students face and overcome obstacles
    • Identifying and practicing ways to thrive and build resilience
    • Assisting students in navigating their own professional identity formation
  • Continually build advisors' knowledge and skills to better meet student needs and share new knowledge in scholarly work

Faculty Advisors are not specialty-specific mentors but rather provide longitudinal advising to students regardless of specialty choice. Students are encouraged to also seek out specialty mentors as they develop their specialty choice.
