Faculty/Staff Advisors

Faculty and staff of the University are available to answer your general advising questions or questions about particular courses or programs of study. Please feel free to contact any of the advisors below with your questions. (During the summer, e-mail is often the most reliable form of communication. In addition, since summer is also the time of vacations, know that answers may at times receive responses delayed by a few days.)
