Boston University Advising Mission Statement

Academic Advising is integral to the teaching mission of the University and engages students in a collaborative process to explore academic and co-curricular opportunities as part of a plan to realize academic, career and life goals.

Advising & Learning Outcomes

The learning outcomes for academic advising are a shared responsibility in each school and college. Through academic advising students will be able to:

1) articulate the intent of general education, school/college, and program requirements.
2) Craft, execute and continually assess a coherent educational plan, including post graduate options, based on assessment of abilities, aspirations, interests, and values.
3) Demonstrate an understanding of the policies and procedures that guide progress to the degree.
4) Identify and access campus resources and co-curricular opportunities to help reach educational, career and life goals.
