Faculty are required to advise and counsel undergraduate and graduate students on academic matters. Individual faculty members are responsible for providing academic counseling to undergraduate students assigned to them, as well as to other undergraduate students who seek such advice as needed.  Student advising at the graduate level is conducted by the student's advisor(s) and the student’s dissertation committee members. In order to assist in student advising, faculty members should maintain current knowledge of University, College, and Department programs and requirements.
