Our Mission:

Academic Advisors at PLU are committed to assisting students as they discover and define their educational, personal, and emergent life goals. The advising relationship is a collaborative partnership through which students may gain an understanding of academic disciplines and university resources, and be supported and challenged to become contributing members of the community. Academic Advisors work to support and strengthen students' development as they progress through their academic journey.
