Academic Officers and Company Advisors
Academic Officers promote academic excellence by mentoring and advising cadets in their company/battalion concerning academic performance at The Citadel and primarily supervise the academics of all freshmen. However, these officers also monitor and assist other cadets with academic challenges.
With considerable autonomy, the Academic Officer reports to the Associate Provost for Academic Affairs and is relied upon to exercise independent judgment when making decisions and to maintain confidentiality.
