Academic Advising and Problem Support

Each student has an academic advisor and is automatically joined to their academic advisor's D2L site.

Students also have access to the Graduate Advisor who oversees the advising process.
In support of students the Graduate Advisor maintains two blogs.
SLIS21 blog for all kinds of curriculum information
