University of Minnesota  Administrative Policy

Faculty Responsibility in Undergraduate Advising on the Curriculum: Twin Cities, Crookston, Morris, Rochester

Policy Statement

The faculty in each unit are responsible for ensuring that there is an effective advising process. The faculty of every unit will collectively determine the mechanisms by which faculty members will be involved in advising students and will periodically review the effectiveness of that process. In some units faculty may choose to be directly involved in advising or may share that responsibility with appropriately trained academic professionals, graduate students, or peers. The faculty of each unit must assist in and cooperate with the advising process as appropriate and are responsible for providing timely information about the curriculum and student performance to advisers. The faculty should encourage students to take advantage of opportunities provided by the advising process to broaden, intensify, and integrate their educational experience.


This policy is not applicable to the Duluth campus.

Reason for Policy

Advising is an important component of the educational enterprise, and expectations for faculty and students regarding advising should be clearly outlined.
