Academic Advising Center Seeks Student Concerns, Ideas At Meetings

Published: Sept. 11, 1997

The Academic Advising Center at the University of Colorado at Boulder will hold a series of town meetings this year where students can share needs, ideas and concerns about advising with staff members who will be implementing changes in the CU advising system.

The first two meetings will be held from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Sept. 15, and from noon to 1 p.m. Sept. 23 in the University Memorial Center Forum Room. The meeting on Sept. 23 will focus on the special needs of transfer students.

“It’s a way for us to keep our focus on the students as we begin to change the way students in Arts and Sciences are advised,” said Doris Downey, director of the Center and assistant dean of Arts and Sciences.

Downey said that student advisers will be present at the town meetings to listen to and answer questions.

Although the Academic Advising Center concentrates on serving students in the College of Arts and Sciences, students from all majors are welcome at the meetings.

The Center for Academic Advising consolidated campus resources this fall in an attempt to give students the information they need to choose a major and a career, graduate in four years and use a variety of campus resources.
