Academic Advising: The Volunteer Experience

Academic Advising: The Volunteer Experience consists of four major components: Self Exploration, Career Exploration, Experience Learning and Academic Planning. Central to the model is the design of a common experience for all students. The common experience is achieved by assigning all students a professional academic advisor for their entire UT career and engaging students early in exploring majors and careers and with their chosen discipline.

The college provides engagement in the discipline utilizing faculty in the role of mentors, who help guide students in research, scholarship, and/or internship opportunities.

Purpose of Academic Advising

Faculty, administrators, and professional staff on this campus consider advising both a responsibility and an opportunity for enriching and enhancing each student’s pattern of learning and personal development. Central to the mission of academic advising at the university is teaching students to understand the purpose of the curriculum and fostering their intellectual and personal development toward academic success and lifelong learning. Through individual, collaborative relationships with academic advisors, students are best able to define and implement sound educational plans that are consistent with their personal values, goals, and career plans.
