What do we do?

The advisors in the Graduate School of Education provide comprehensive and collaborative academic advising using multiple modalities. Graduate students are encouraged, empowered, and educated to become self-directed learners and competent decision-makers. Best practices, current research, and student feedback inform the strategies and resources used to guide and support students' educational, career, and life goals. Student success is fostered in an inclusive environment that acknowledges individual and diverse needs, intellectual curiosity, and cultural awareness, and encourages lifelong learning. In short, we help to guide and support you throughout your time at Lesley - please connect with us often!
