The role of the advisor.

Each student has at least one faculty academic adviser. The academic adviser is the individual to help with students’ intellectual, social and emotional development while at Monmouth College. Thus, an adviser:

  • Is interested in the student as an individual 

  • Helps a student develop his/her course of study 

  • Discusses his/her academic progress 

  • Helps to link the general education program, the mission of the college, and the student's major together

  • Help the student set goals

  • Is a friendly person for the student to turn to in time of need or crisis 

  • Knows how to link the student with the appropriate people who can help with difficulties 

  • Provides the student with encouragement   

  • Makes a serious effort to get to know the advisee
