Academic Advisement

Interdisciplinary Studies provides each student with an Interdisciplinary Studies mentor, a person who will assist the student in choosing classes, in defining a direction for the program of studies, and in coping with problems associated with both traditional and nontraditional areas of university life. A mentor is a current faculty member who is teaching regularly in Interdisciplinary Studies. The mentor will usually have special interest and expertise in areas that coincide with the interests of his/her advisees. An Interdisciplinary Studies mentor will expect to meet with each of his or her students at least once each semester to discuss progress-to-date and to plan the next semester’s course of study. Students are encouraged to see their mentors more often during the school year as problems, concerns and new ideas arise.
