Academic Advising and Planning
Academic Advising at Geneseo begins with a strong tradition of faculty advising: each student is assigned a faculty member to meet with to discuss their course of study, their academic interests, and their goals after graduating. The Deans of the Schools of Education and Business also advise their graduate students and offer group advising sessions for new majors.
Many professional staff members across campus provide academic advising that complements the work of faculty advisors, especially the Access Opportunity Program, the International Student & Scholar Services office, the Study Abroad Office, and Career Development (including information on Internships).
Academic clubs and organizations also provide informal peer-to-peer advising and important information about registration and students’ experiences at Geneseo.
Deans Celia Easton and Peter Corrigan lead the Academic Planning and Advising office in Erwin 106. This office directly assists students with registration, advising, graduation reviews to earn their diplomas, and skill sets integral to success — including study skills, consultation to help them stay on track, and strategies for communicating with with faculty and mentors. Dr. Becky Glass holds a joint teaching and advising appointment and assists students several hours each week in Erwin 106. Ms. Julie Wolfer and Ms. Kelly Hoag provide immediate help to students who drop into the office; Ms. Hoag is also the contact in Erwin 106 for assistance with graduate studies.
Students with questions about graduation audits should see Ms. Kathy Gibson Moore in Erwin 106.
Academic Advising is integrated with The Office of Disability Services (Dr. Tabitha Buggie-Hunt, Erwin 22) and the Office of New Student Programs & Orientation (Ms. Katie Buckley, Erwin 220). Each office provides personal attention to help students be successful at Geneseo.
Academic Advising and Planning in Erwin Hall 106 is open 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday - Friday. Call (585) 245-5541 to schedule an appointment.
