Advising at
It is a decision-making process by which students
realize their maximum educational potential by
communication and information exchanges with
an advisor; it is ongoing, multi-faceted, and the
responsibility of both student and advisor.
The advisor serves as a facilitator of
communication, a coordinator of learning
experiences through course and career planning
and academic progress review, and an agent of
referral to other campus agencies as necessary.”

Definition of Advising
“Academic advising is a developmental process
which assists students in the clarification of their
life / career goals and in the development of
educational plans for realization of these goals.
The Jesuit vision of education implies further
that students learn how to be critical, examine
attitudes, challenge assumptions, and analyze
motives. All of this is important if they are to be
able to make decisions in freedom, the freedom
that allows one to make love-filled and faithfilled decisions.
Advising by Jesuit Values
Jesuit education is:
A call to human excellence, to the fullest possible
development of all human qualities. This implies
a rigor and academic excellence that challenges
the student to develop all of his or her talents to
the fullest. It is a call to critical thinking and
disciplined studies, a call to develop the whole
person, head and heart, intellect and feelings.
Student and faculty success is affected by the
learning environment. An institution provides
appropriate academic support services to
strengthen academic programs and ensure the
success of students and faculty in meeting the goals
of the educational programs.
Academic support services may include, but are not
limited to, academic teaching and resource centers,
tutoring, academic advising, counseling, disability
services, resource centers, adequate library,
laboratories, information technology, and
SACS Advising Standards
Academic support services pertain to students at all
levels and to faculty and are consistent with the
institution’s mission, enhance the educational
experience, and contribute to the achievement of
teaching and learning outcomes.

College of HUNS DRAFT
The College of HUNS is dedicated to nurturing
students’ intellectual, personal, and professional
development through faculty-lead academic
advising. Intellectual mentoring assumes a good
working relationship between advisors and students,
and its success necessitates that expectations, both
for faculty advisors and students, be clear, and that
they be met.
The primary purpose of academic advising is to help
students explore and understand the relationship
between their educational paths and future goals.
How to Define Advising?
Academic Advising, anchored in the Jesuit tradition
of teaching and reflection, helps students acquire
the knowledge and skills necessary to take full
responsibility for completing an educational
program consistent with their educational and
professional aspirations. Faculty serve as the
primary academic advisor for students in
collaboration with professional staff advisors
across campus. Successful academic advising at
Loyola requires full pariticipation of the faculty
advisor, the student, the college and the university.
