Advising Resources for Faculty

Academic advising forms a secondary part of each faculty member’s teaching responsibility. Sound academic advising supports the learning process of students by helping students understand the value and benefit of his or her entire academic program, including BELL Core and the major, and by helping students make responsible choices within the framework of a degree program. Beginning with their second year of an appointment to the Belmont faculty, faculty members are expected to advise students and to assume an appropriate number of student advisees within the overall number of students enrolled in an academic program. Faculty members are expected to be informed academic advisors, with current knowledge about and attentiveness to the following:

  • BELL Core, major, and minor requirements;
  • General academic policies, including processes for filing paperwork related to a student's academic record;
  • Available resources for students with difficulties and disabilities in the Office of the Dean of Students;
  • Campus resources for career planning and other academic and personal assistance.

Although students have ultimate responsibility for their academic progress, faculty members are expected to monitor their advisees’ academic progress, including convocation requirements, working with any advisee not showing adequate academic progress to determine the cause and to seek campus resources to cope with academic or personal challenges, if necessary.
