Associate Advisors are the primary resource of academic support for freshmen. They are an essential part of a support team made up of a Freshman Advisor, Housemaster, Graduate Resident Tutor (GRT) and the Office of Undergraduate Advising and Academic Programming (UAAP).
Associate Advisors also provide support and academic resources to freshmen living in their residence under the direction of the Associate Advisor Steering Committee.
The AA Steering Committee serves as a liaison between dorms on campus and the UAAP. Members connect associate advisors to the freshmen living in their dorm and are responsible for providing in-house support and academic resources for freshmen. Applications to serve on the Committee are available.
