Academic advising at UCLA is committed to fostering student development in ways that help students thrive intellectually, professionally, and personally, here and beyond. As a critical component of the University’s mission, advisors guide students through their transitions, create spaces that encourage them to engage with their diverse communities of scholars, expose them to new ideas and experiences, and prepare them for life after UCLA. Advisors are dedicated to cultivating their own professional growth so as to understand best practices of providing advising that directly addresses student needs, facilitates student learning, and cultivates empowerment. Quality advising inspires both students and advisors to be change-agents, leaders, and valuable contributors to our diverse and ever-changing world.
