Aims of the Faculty Advisor Program
- Build longitudinal relationships among students and faculty advisors
- Build peer communities that foster reflection and growth
- Facilitate students in meeting their academic and career development needs
- Facilitate students' personal and professional development through:
- Helping students face and overcome obstacles
- Identifying and practicing ways to thrive and build resilience
- Assisting students in navigating their own professional identity formation
- Continually build advisors' knowledge and skills to better meet student needs and share new knowledge in scholarly work
Faculty Advisors are not specialty-specific mentors but rather provide longitudinal advising to students regardless of specialty choice. Students are encouraged to also seek out specialty mentors as they develop their specialty choice.
