Brooks College Integrative Learning and Advising
Advising Tips and Guidelines
Grand Valley State University recognizes that advising is an integral part of a college education. The advising process establishes a collaborative relationship between student and advisor in which the student feels a sense of connection, support, and guidance. Effective advising is developmental. It responds to, and creates, growth and change within the student. Advising encourages students to think critically, seek out resources, and develop action plans. It provides students with the information and encouragement they need to take personal responsibility for exploring options and making decisions. Ultimately, advising allows each student to achieve a meaningful and successful educational experience.
The Brooks College of Interdisciplinary Studies strives to ensure that convenient, accessible and accurate academic advising and support is available to all students interested in the programs housed within the college.
