Personal contact between students and faculty is fostered not only through classes but also through an advising system. Prior to the opening of the academic year, members of the academic advising team contact entering students and work closely with them to set up a first schedule of courses and inform them of the support services available to all students. Later, students may be assigned to advisors who can best meet their long-term academic needs. A student can also select an advisor of his or her choice, in consultation with the Academic Advising Office. The primary purpose of the Academic Advising Office is to assist students in the development of meaningful educational plans that are compatible with their life goals.
Advisors work with students in defining goals for the future and choosing an appropriate academic program, counsel them regarding progress and are available for consultation. The academic dean, the associate academic dean, the assistant to the academic dean and the director of academic advising also assist students. Aware of the holistic nature of the student's learning experience, the director of academic advising works closely with the Office of Student Affairs, the Academic Enrichment Center, Counseling, Health, and Center for Career Development to help enhance the student's academic, personal, and pre-professional growth.
The ultimate responsibility for making decisions about educational plans and life goals rests with the individual student. Curry College advisors assist students in evaluating their educational plans, answer questions about exploring major fields, and provide general information about academic policies and procedures.
