Student Success Center Team

Our Mission

At the Lurie College of Education, academic advising provides students with the opportunity to build a relationship with their advisor for the purpose of:

  • gaining assistance in planning their educational career,
  • learning the skills needed for academic success, and
  • accessing a variety of resources and services available to them on the SJSU campus.

We believe academic advising is a collaborative and transformative educational process where students and their advisors work jointly to develop plans for achievement of the students’ personal, academic, and professional goals. Each student has a unique set of experiences, and our team is here to support you navigate times of uncertainty, when obstacles present themselves, and to celebrate your milestones. 

We look forward to joining you on this journey!
