Building on the success of its Fundamentals of Engineering program for freshmen, the Statler College has opened an Advising Center for sophomores, juniors and seniors.

The Center, which is located in Room 151 of the Engineering Sciences Building, is managed by Michelle Poland, interim director. She is joined on a part-time basis by Chris Randall, program coordinator in the Lane Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. Both Poland and Randall have been recognized by the College and University for outstanding advising. The Center will be an integral part of the College’s Office of Student Services, led by Sarah Lowery.  

As part of a phased rollout, the departments of civil and environmental engineering and computer science and electrical engineering transferred advising responsibilities to the Center in fall 2018. The remaining departments are expected to be on-boarded by the 2019-2020 academic year.
