At CCAS, our role is to help students find the information, self-knowledge, and experiences that will move their lives in the directions they choose. CCAS advisors will not “prescribe” answers or programs to students. We encourage students to find academic areas that they enjoy and in which they will be successful. Extracurricular experiences are integral to career and academic development, and we encourage students to seek opportunities outside of the classroom. Although students are ultimately responsible for their educational experiences, we believe academic advising is a collaborative process.
CCAS provides integrated academic and career advising resources for undecided and exploring undergraduates.
