Advising

Personalized, passionate, and proactive, our advising approach prioritizes individualized care. Each student in a degree program is assigned an advisor who provides  academic, personal, and spiritual support as needed. Everything we do is grounded in the Jesuit ideal of cura personalis, or care for the whole person.
