Resources at MSU to enhance student success
Few things are more important to the future success of your advisees than connecting them to the help and support services they need. Over a hundred people in more than a dozen offices on campus are dedicated to helping students through whatever obstacles they may encounter while at college. They will help your advisee over academic hurdles, assist them in finding career opportunities, and listen when they are just plain overwhelmed. As a faculty mentor, your role is to help the student make the connections they need and nudge them into action. If you refer your advisee to another office for assistance, be certain the student knows the name of the person they need to see, where to go, what questions to ask, and how to act on the information they receive. Make notes in the student file and the next time you see your advisee, ask them about the referral.
