Meet the Advisors

Advising Center Staff

In addition to the director and assistant directors, the Advising Center has a dedicated staff of 26 full-time professional advisors from a broad range of academic backgrounds. We are also fortunate to have two administrative staff members, as well as our team of Peer Advisors, all of whom help ensure that everything runs smoothly so that we can best serve our students.

As an incoming student in the Dietrich School, you are assigned an academic advisor within the Advising Center. Once you have officially declared your Dietrich School major, or once you have been accepted into a different undergraduate school within the University, you will transition to a different advisor in your chosen program.
