This reference guide has been assembled from many sources. It draws on the experience of dedicated advisors and Student Affairs professionals to provide relevant information in an easy to access format. The historical advisor handbook was the foundation for the publication, but we have added information about campus services for students and how to assist students in best accessing those services. We have included copies of policies we feel may be of interest or use to you when interacting with students.
You will first find an alphabetized listing of topics or issues that may arise while meeting with students. Included on this list is the department/area information responsible for the services to address the issue and its contact information. Next you will find a more detailed description of each issue which may answer quick questions. In the appendix you will find copies of policies you might find useful.
If you aren’t sure where to refer a student, Student Affairs is always there to assist. They offer a one-stop shop for all student issues and can address any problem no matter how small or large.
