Student Advisors and Advocates

Each CST department has a Student Advisor and Advocate who is a qualified undergraduate major in that department. The Student Advisor and Advocate is thoroughly familiar with requirements and curricula of the department, and can competently advise fellow students on the courses and faculty members of the department. The Student Advisor and Advocate also has the information about career options for the department's graduates.

The Student Advisor and Advocate is familiar with the College of Science and Technology Grievance Procedure and is the first person to consult in case of an academic grievance within their department. Please make sure to contact the appropriate Student Advisor and Advocate for the department from which the grievance initiates. In the event that grievance is sought in an SCTC course, this will be overseen by the Coordinator of Student Representatives. Grievances initiating from a course in a non-CST department are managed by the school/college in which the course is housed.

The Student Advisor and Advocate will serve as a student-faculty "go-between," and attempt to resolve the grievance. A student must initiate this first stage of the academic grievance by submitting a letter detailing the grievance. (Learn more about the procedure's three stages.) A copy of the College of Science and Technology Grievance Procedure can be obtained from the Student Advisor and Advocate. Each Student Advisor and Advocate holds office hours within the department, and the Coordinator of Student Representatives is located in the CST Center for Academic Advising and Professional Development.

The Student Advisor and Advocate will hold regular office hours to advise other undergraduate students. Any student can walk-in to the office hours for the respective Student Advisor and Advocate of their department to receive advice on course load and resources available within the department. For long-term schedule planning, career planning, and other serious advising matters, the Student Advisor and Advocate will refer the student to CST main advising. The Student Advisor and Advocate will also be knowledgeable of and be able to direct students to any other appropriate student academic and support resources.

During the Fall 2020 semester, Student Advisor and Advocates are available to meet with you virtually via Zoom. If you would like to meet with a Student Advisor and Advocate, please click on their Zoom link below during their office hours. If the office hours conflict with your schedule, you can e-mail that Student Advisor and Advocate to see if you can arrange a meeting at an alternate time. If you have any issues getting in contact with your Student Advisor and Advocate, please e-mail Keith Schweiger (keiths@temple.edu).
