Academic Advising & Coaching Services 

In CAHSS, the Professional Academic Advisor and faculty advisors provide academic advising services. Our Professional Academic Advisor, Tonia Hamilton, serves freshmen and students identified as at-risk, and coaches select special populations. Faculty advisors work collaboratively with students in their respective departments to help students realize their full potential and achieve the academic, professional and personal goals they set for themselves. 

According to the National Academic Advising Association, Academic Advising is an interactive process in which the adviser helps the student set and achieve academic goals, acquire relevant information and services, and make responsible decisions consistent with interests, goals, abilities, and degree requirements. Academic Coaching is an advising approach that pushes the student to reflect and act on the range of goals, interests, and passions available in higher education.
