"Academic advising is an educational process that, by intention and design, facilitates students' understanding of the meaning and purpose of higher education and fosters their intellectual and personal development toward academic success and lifelong learning." (NACADA, 2004).

The Golisano Advising Team is committed to the success of all students within the college. In tandem with the Institute Advising Office, we utilize a student-centered approach that enriches learning and facilitates student development in preparation for success within a diverse, global society. Academic advisors empower students to make decisions that enhance their educational, personal, and professional growth and development. Through consistent interactions, advisors build strong relationships with students. We believe academic advising is driven by students. Academic advisors guide students on how to navigate through the overall college experience.
