The fundamental purpose of academic advising is to assist you in clarifying and meeting your educational and career goals. Academic advising works best when you and your faculty advisor work together as a team.
Your academic advisor has expertise in scholarly issues, especially pertaining to Holocaust studies. There are many other issues about which you may seek advice and support such as student health, legal matters, writing and learning skills, general career planning, lifestyle/residential issues, academic accommodations and more. UVM offers a variety of free professional advising regarding these and other issues. The College of Arts & Sciences Student Services can help you to identify the resources most likely to meet your needs.
