All core faculty have the opportunity to advise but only those who are willing to attend training sessions should be assigned advisees. Requirements for being an advisor should be written and circulated by the Academic Advising Task Force or the Office of Vice President for Academic Affairs. Those wishing to advise should be asked to acknowledge with a signature that they understand their responsibilities. Adjunct faculty should not be assigned advisees unless they have an on campus office or access to said office space where they can meet students. Additionally they must attend the appropriate training sessions. Both classified and professional staff may be assigned advisees given approvals by the appropriate channels (VPAA Division Chairs Program Coordinators). All academic advisors should be endorsed by the appropriate division chairs as competent academic counselors and mentors.
