Academic Advising

The mission of academic advising at Springfield College is to assist each student in exploring learning opportunities inside and outside of the classroom while successfully negotiating the academic rigors of the college environment. Each student is assigned a faculty advisor within their major department. With their faculty advisor, students are assisted in formulating and following an educational plan that prepares them for leadership in service to humanity and is consistent with the student’s values, abilities, and career and life goals.
