Academic Advising Handbook: Mission and Values

Our advising mission

The mission of advising at Kansas State University is to provide academic advising and assistance, which helps students successfully make the transition into college life. Effective advising helps students learn to set personal and academic goals and to develop strategies for achieving those goals. Learning to develop strategies for achieving goals will be useful in their academic careers, as well as in their personal lives and professional careers.

The core values of academic advising

Academic Advisors are Responsible:

  • for themselves and their professional practices
  • to the individuals they advise
  • for involving others
  • to their institutions
  • to higher education
  • to their educational community
