Academic Resources at SLU
SLU provides students with both an academic advisor and a faculty mentor. Both are available to help students meet their academic goals and aid in their success at SLU and beyond. It is suggested that students meet with their academic advisor and faculty mentor at least once a semester.

- Aid students in academic transitions
- Plan and approve course registration for students
- Clarify the program/curriculum requirements, particularly as they relate to the Jesuit model of education
- Inform students of available resources for academic and career success
Role of Faculty Mentoring In Your Academic Department
