Gardner-Webb University recognizes academic advising to be a critical component of a students’ educational experience. It is our goal to provide academic advising assistance that helps to make a satisfactory transition to college life for both freshmen and transfer students.
The Advising Center advocates developmental advising wherein advisors take an active role in communication with students and in helping resolve their academic concerns.
Through a collaborative relationship with an academic advisor, students are best able to define and implement sound educational plans that are consistent with their personal values, gifts, and career goals. Students learn not only to set personal and academic goals but to develop strategies for goal attainment.
Our purpose is to provide an opportunity to enhance academic decision-making through major exploration, academic planning, goal setting, and fulfillment of degree requirements for every Gardner-Webb University student.
