Service to Students

 

Summary of Student Advising Responsibilities

 

Advisement responsibilities include Cadets and graduate students. Between fall 2003 and summer 2008, I was assigned an average of 9 Cadets and 30 graduate students per semester. To accommodate students’ needs, advisement occurred in the office (Grimsley 335), Lowcountry Graduate Center (Room 118E), the monthly Teacher Education Division Advisement Meetings for graduate students. It should be noted that many students seek advisement from faculty who are not their advisors. These ad hoc advisement meetings usually occur before or after class sessions, during class breaks, in the hallways, or anywhere on campus. It is a testament to the organization and quality of the advisement process that students feel comfortable seeking advisement from any of the teacher education faculty.
