The Director of Advising is responsible for the large scale strategic visioning, supervision, administrative and budget oversight, designing programs, and evaluation of Undeclared student advising which averages (approximately 2700 students per year) and Health Profession Advising (25% of incoming freshmen express interest). The Director takes responsibility for building a positive culture around advising, developing and promoting effective advising practices guided by best practices, assessing learning outcomes and institutional data. Additionally, the Director supports unit growth and enrichment that align with the University’s Strategic Plan, diversity goals, Principles of Community, and Student Success Initiatives.

The director also coordinates University Scholastic Standards and appeals procedures and serves on a wide variety of councils focusing on changes in policies and procedures that best serve undergraduate students.



The Director of Advising reports to the Executive Director of the Collaborative for Student Achievement and works closely with the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Affairs (VPUA) and the Vice President for Student Affairs (VPSA). This is a full-year, full-time Administrative Professional position.
