Coming Soon: Academic Advising Contract
At Sewanee, our approach to academic advising is grounded in principles of respect, commitment, integrity, and professionalism—for both advisor and advisee in our system of shared responsibility. We firmly believe that effective advising depends upon a relationship of mutual respect and commitment.
Each student is matched with a trained and dedicated pre-major advisor. This faculty member will help guide advisees through the first 3+ semesters of college, not just by assisting with questions but by probing, questioning, challenging, and encouraging advisees to explore academic opportunities and see the connections and relevance of their studies. Throughout this process, the advisor will engage the student in career exploration activities and will prompt involvement in those campus activities that help develop critical skills.
