The University Advising Center’s Exploratory Advisor provides prescriptive academic advising to students in transition, particularly those changing or declaring their major, to facilitate intentional academic decision-making. Exploratory Advisors have a working knowledge of all college curricula (i.e. 140+ majors and concentrations), major-change policies and procedures for all 11 academic colleges/schools) and must communicate regularly with campus partners. In addition, this position must maintain an average advising schedule of 30 hours per week, participate in on-going training, conduct various outreach efforts, and regularly assess the effectiveness of Exploratory Advising programs. The position requires strong critical thinking, memorization, attention to detail, and communication skills, as well as the ability to work independently while developing strong collaborative relationships with colleagues, students, and student affairs and academic affairs units. The individual must be able to exercise excellent professional judgment and discretion, making decisions on a regular basis that impact student welfare and the institution.
