Academic and Faculty Advisors

All CAL students have a support network that consists of an Academic Advisor and a Faculty Advisor. Kerri Johnsen serves as the Academic Advisor for all students within the College. 

Students within CAL are encouraged to schedule an in-person or virtual meeting with Kerri to discuss course planning, including the creation of an academic plan; develop, clarify, and modify academic goals; ask questions related to adding a CAL minor; learn about resources within the College and across campus

Faculty advisors are assigned to each student based on their program(s) of study. Students can view their faculty advisor from their Academics tab in Workday. Faculty advisors are available to serve as mentors who can create linkages between academic and career goals; suggest extracurricular opportunities that can enhance a student’s educational experience.
