Advising Philosophy

Our Student Advisors are guided by NACADA The Global Community for Academic Advising's philosophy of Appreciative Advising. It is the intentional collaborative practice of asking positive, open-ended questions that help students optimize their educational experiences and achieve their dreams, goals, and potentials. It is perhaps the best example of a fully student-centered approach to student development.

Mission Statement

UNBC Student Advisors act as catalysts for success.  We create the conditions of empowerment for students to cultivate a connection with the university community that fosters an ability to define and achieve their personal, career and academic goals.
