Faculty and Staff Resources

We understand that you have students asking you many questions from simple to complex; and while each division is staffed with an Advising Center Academic Advisor, they may not always be available or there may be a need to help the student that only you the faculty member authorized to do. Therefore, to help you in your faculty advising role, we’ve put together a website that is intended to work as working guide. Feel free to provide us feedback, and connect with your division advisor often.
