Advising for academic advising

The recent SMUSA Student Services Report, entitled "Measuring up: Reaching the Industry Standard in Support Services for Students", demonstrates the need for increased Academic advising resources at Saint Mary's. Our school, when compared to schools of similar size, such as the Unversity of Lethbridge, has a disproportionate number of advisors per student. This means that for key areas like program requirements and course selection there may not be enough resources.

If elected, I will work with the university to increase the number of academic advisors and other resources for students.
