Academic unit advisers

Academic unit advisers are faculty members who advise students in the schools and departments within the Faculties of Humanities, Science, and Social Sciences.  Their responsibilities include providing advice on course selection and sequencing, introducing students to the culture and expectations of the academic unit, and considering requests for course substitutions and waivers when there are compelling reasons to do so.
