Statement of purpose

We Are Here To Help

In support of Genesee Community College’s vision and mission, academic advisors will seek to empower students to meet the demands of a changing world and encourage educational experiences which promote intellectual and social growth.

Our goal as academic advisors is to assist students in developing meaningful educational goals. Although ultimate responsibility for making educational plans rests with students, advisors are available to assist students in this process.  As advisors, we are committed to being accessible to students and we will seek to provide a collaborative and student-centered approach to advising. This includes providing the following assistance:

  • Advising students in developing educational plans consistent with their goals
  • Providing accurate information regarding degree and institutional requirements
  • Assisting with the appropriate selection of courses
  • Evaluating student progress toward established goals
  • Directing students toward campus resources that will promote academic success
