Florida Atlantic University recognizes and embraces its
responsibility to provide students with the necessary and
appropriate skills, abilities, information, and resources to
enable them to make enlightened decisions. To meet the
challenges of excellence in education, this institution is
committed to offering its students the opportunity to receive
assistance and guidance in clarifying life and career goals,
developing suitable educational plans, strengthening
decision-making skills, increasing their awareness of University
policies and procedures, and acquiring information regarding
University and community resources.
Students must be active participants in deciding the goals and
direction of their university experience, and they are expected
to avail themselves of all opportunities to become
knowledgeable, self-directed, and competent decision-makers.
As partners in the advising process, the student and advisor
work toward the common goal of enhancing the academic experience
by devising the best possible academic program. However,
students must ultimately take responsibility for their own
progress toward a degree.
