Total Advising - Academic & Faculty Excellence

Total Advising

TOTAL ADVISING guides students on their educational journeys even before they arrive on Grounds.

This integrated approach to advising practices provides students with the resources, knowledge, and expert advice they need to make the best choices for their future.

UVA’s Total Advising initiative helps students navigate big decisions and stay on track to accomplish their educational and career goals. Representatives from an array of departments and programs hold regular office hours in the new Dathel and John Georges Student Center, providing course and career advising, internship search assistance, suggestions for pursuing undergraduate research, and more.

It can be quite an experience for students to navigate a school as big as UVA. At this stage in their lives, these are some of the first—and most important—choices that students will make.”

—Dathel and John Georges, UVA parents and lead donors to the Dathel and John Georges Student Center

The center offers multiple services in one location on the second floor of Clemons Library. The new space is open and versatile, a flexible model that fits student needs so the right people and resources are available at the right times. Meeting spaces, tutoring opportunities, and career resources are available at the center.

Your gifts to faculty excellence are critical to sustaining Total Advising. Help us inspire the minds of tomorrow’s citizen leaders.
