Section V. Student Advising
A. Academic Advising
The University considers a faculty advisor to be primarily a resource person, competent not only in a specific field but also familiar with the broad educational purpose of a public university. It is expected that the advisor will offer a knowledgeable response on matters of an academic sort; will make appropriate referrals, and will encourage the students to keep careful records of their own progress toward the degrees they select by checking with the undergraduate or graduate catalog for University and departmental requirements.
