Who is My Advisor?

Academic Advisors (Academic & Professional Development Managers)

In our center, our Academic Advisors are called Academic & Professional Development Managers. We believe a liberal arts degree combined with meaningful, well-planned experiences can equip you with the skills and abilities you need to be successful in life and work.

The role of Academic & Professional Development Managers is to support students in making informed, intentional decisions about their time at BYU so that they graduate with the competencies and experiences they need in their life and career.

Academic and Professional Development Managers can help you with the following:

  • Career readiness and exploration
  • Major and minor exploration
  • Graduate school preparation
  • Academic Improvement Plans (AIP)
  • Developing competencies through experiential learning
