Academic Advising at Rollins College is an intentional, collaborative relationship facilitated by our outstanding faculty. We believe the faculty-student advising relationship is essential to students’ ability to reach their goals and to make meaning of their liberal arts education. Rollins faculty advisors are central to the mission of the College, specifically “empowering graduates to pursue meaningful lives and productive careers.”
At Rollins, Academic Advising is a dynamic, developmental decision-making process that assists students in clarifying long-term goals and developing educational plans for the realization of those goals. The process empowers students to become responsible for their own education and to make viable academic decisions regarding their future.
In the advising relationship, students realize their maximum educational potential through ongoing communication and information exchanges with their advisor. In this interactive partnership, the advisor serves as facilitator, teacher, mentor, and guide, and shares responsibility for enhancing student success.
