It is expected that Student Advisors will be spending approximately 10 hours each week in the duties listed below:

Work with the team of Students Advisors to ensure that the advising office is open during weekdays to assist Human Biology Students in their declaration process. Student Advisors are the first contact for students declaring HumBio, and additionally maintain the office as an information clearinghouse for students with questions about courses, the Capstone requirement, advisors, and/or honors or any other topics pertaining to the Human Biology major.

Student Advisors are responsible as a group to assure that the services of the office are available at regular times to students and that student advice is available in the form of person to person contact, email, or phone.

Student Advisors will keep in contact with current faculty advisors on a regular basis and plan events to facilitate contact between advisors and their advisees or advisors and prospective advisees. In addition, Student Advisors should increase the number of faculty willing to advise students by working with the director, faculty liaison and others to identify faculty who will be able and willing to do this.

Student Advisors will all attend weekly meetings with the Student Services team and Faculty Liaison for Advising.

Student Advisors plan, implement and evaluate important additional activities within the Human Biology Program, including but not limited to Declaration Workshops and any special events deemed appropriate. Student advisors may be asked to represent HumBio at res-ed or other events for undeclared students.

Student Advisors are responsible for sharing responsibilities equitably.

Applications are no longer open for the Student Advisor position for the 2019-20 Academic Year.
