What can your Advisor do for you?

The Academic Advisor for most Majors under the Bachelor of Science (Agricultural and Environmental Sciences) is Dr. Julie Major.

I can help you with a wide range of questions and issues including program selection; transferring from other programs or institutions; choosing courses; dealing with academic impacts of health or personal issues; tailoring your program to your goals and objectives; integrating research, exchanges and field studies into your program; administrative changes to your academic record, and more. If I can't help you with your question myself, I can direct you to someone who will.

My office is a safe space where you are welcome to discuss anything confidentially, including gender and cultural identity, disability, mental and physical health, and sexual orientation. I am happy to advise in English, français, español, ou Português.
