CCA Undergraduate Advising advocates for student success. We partner with students to develop and achieve their creative, academic, personal, and professional goals as participants in diverse local and global communities. In collaboration with our advising, students should be able to:

  • Navigate policies and systems to find value in all aspects of their educational choices.
  • Connect with resources in order to cultivate dynamic creative practices.
  • Develop strategies for success with intentionality, integrity, and equanimity.

Please contact with general questions or concerns regarding advising.

Advising Values

  • We Advise. You Decide. Promoting awareness of policies and resources that impact student needs and goals within the context of the community, college, and program.
  • You Are Supported. Encouraging self-reflection, self-authorship, and empowerment to develop networks of relationships that strengthen student success.
  • We Are With You. Supporting student growth through meaningful interactions that cultivate respect and prioritize self-care.
