Philosophy of Academic Advising
Academic Advising is an ongoing process and an integral part of an NAU student’s experience. We believe in empowering students to become self-directed learners, armed with the skills and knowledge needed to navigate the university experience. At the heart of advising is teaching and the holistic development of the student; advisors strive to engage and encourage students to take ownership of their educational experience and provide guidance for informed decision making.
