Mission Statement on Academic Advising

"Based on a system of shared responsibility, Chadron State College seeks to assist students in the development of meaningful educational plans that are compatible with career goals and instill a desire for lifelong learning." -Chadron State College Advising Committee

Academic Advising Center

Academic Advising is assisting students to share the responsibility for academic planning with the faculty advisors. The goal is to encourage students to find their own answers and utilize their advisors as sounding boards for their educational goals.
