Below are the values that help inform and shape advising at Hunter College.
The values associated with academic advising at Hunter College are closely alligned with the core values and commitments of the college in the 2012-2020 strategic plan.
Diversity: Advising practices and approaches will be shaped to fit the diverse backgrounds and varied developmental needs of our campus populations.
Intellectual Innovation: Advising creates capacity and growth in students' achievement of personal and educational goals. It fosters intellectual growth through deliberation of academic plans and opportunities.
Service to the Community: We foster a culture of independent thinking and global awareness so that students make informed, socially responsible choices consistent with their academic, career and life goals.
Democratic Opportunity: Definining one's values and core principles strengthens students' foundations to confront established elites and the status quo.
Accountability: We are committed to timely, accurate, and skilled advising. Advising units participate in campus-wide assessment efforts to assure this occurs.
Inclusion: Advising fosters in students a sense of belonging, community, and value and is a collaborative process among all faculty and campus personnel. It engages parents, community members, and all educational partners to maximize students' ability to function at full capacity.
Openness: Advising serves to keep all students fully informed and engaged in the academic and co-curricular opportunities of the college.
