Faculty Advisors

Advisors welcome the opportunity to answer questions concerning educational and career planning, and how economics fits into both. Faculty advisors are available for consultation during weekday office hours and by appointment. For questions concerning specific college rules and regulations, students should see the main department office or the College Center for Advising Services.
