This important feedback will be used to help improve the quality of advising and mentoring. Please answer as many
questions as you wish. Your mentor or advisor will not see this form; however the students on the Dean’s Student
Leadership Council and the faculty members in your program will be informed of the summary of responses from all
surveys.
CCPS has a dual advising system for undergraduates: an “academic advisor” on staff with the Undergraduate Advising
Center and a “faculty mentor” who is with the program’s department or school. Graduate students have a single “faculty
advisor” who is with the program’s school, although the Graduate Program Director, if different, may also do substantial
advising. Sometimes faculty and staff members who are not officially assigned will serve as a student’s advisor. This
survey will use the term “advisor/mentor” to apply to all these people.
If you have never met with an advisor/mentor, please respond to these first three questions and those on page 10.
