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.
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. 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.
