The Faculty Advisor program is an important support system established by the institute. The objectives of this program, as seen by students, professors, and the institute vary, as do their expectations. These range from seeing the Fac-Ad as a constant more-experienced mentor for advice in career related, academic, and personal decisions and problems, to seeing him/her as an administrative hurdle in the form of a signature on forms. InsIghT investigates this program for our next issue, and we would appreciate it if you could help us garner a student opinion by filling out this survey. We promise you- it’s short!
