What to Expect from Advising
Advising is a team effort between you and your advisor. You’ll get the most out of your advising experience if you go into it with the right set of expectations. Do you know what to expect from your advisor, and what's expected of you?
At CCAS & the CEC, we respect, value, and celebrate the diversity of all UW-Madison students. We strive to make every student feel welcome, safe, and included. By committing ourselves to supporting and advocating for students of all identities, we hope to help foster a healthy campus environment where students can explore academic interests, make decisions about majors and careers, and reach their full potential.
