Accomplishing these goals is the joint responsibility of the students, faculty, staff and administrators of the University.

The Director of the Student Advising Center is responsible for administration of the University program of faculty and student advisers for new students. Departments and professional schools and programs are responsible for administration of the program of faculty advising for students who have selected a major.
