The objectives of the university’s academic advising program are to help advisees identify and achieve their academic goals, to promote their intellectual discovery, and to encourage students to take advantage of both in-and out-of class educational opportunities in order that they become self-directed learners and decision makers.
Both advisers and advisees share responsibility for making the advising relationship succeed. By encouraging their advisees to become engaged in their education, to meet their educational goals, and to develop the habit of learning, advisers assume a significant educational role. The advisee’s unit of enrollment will provide each advisee with a primary academic adviser, the information needed to plan the chosen program of study, and referrals to other specialized resources.

Students might use the minor in Diversity and Inclusion in Health and Human Development to prepare for future positions in diversity leadership in organizations or for further graduate studies related to culturally appropriate health care, culturally sensitive tourism and hospitality, or simply to better prepare them for a diverse and global future.
Many employers are recognizing that being a successful company in the 21st century requires a full commitment to diversity and inclusion. Career paths now exist for individuals who specialize in understanding the challenges of serving diverse patients, students, customers, or clients and developing programs to ensure the organization is welcoming to all, able to recruit and retain a diverse workforce, and provide ongoing training that improves inclusion.
Opportunities for Graduate Studies
Students continuing on to graduate study in clinical fields will find tremendous growth in personalized medicine, which fully appreciates the unique characteristics of persons, as well as in societal determinants of health, which recognizes health is shaped by our cultural environment. Students seeking further study in social and behavioral sciences can gain a strong platform for graduate programs that emphasize how culture, society and behavior interact in ways that impact health and quality of life. Students interested in graduate studies in business or management can develop an understanding of one of the critical issues facing leaders in any business organization.
