Advising and Peer Mentorship

Our trained and experienced staff of professional advisors serve RWU by: 

  • Directing students to campus resources and information to help them transition to college and meet personalized goals
  • Meeting regularly with students to help keep them on track in their academic progress
  • Providing guidance on choosing the right major for ALL students with an emphasis on undecided students and students who are questioning their major
  • Engaging in professional development to stay up-to-date on best advising practices 
  • Collaborating with offices across campus to ensure complete support for all students
  • Assisting students with the following procedures: 
    • Academic appeals 
    • SAP appeals 
    • Change of major, minor, or core concentration
    • Change of student status (withdrawal/transfer)

Our team of student Peer Mentors contributes to the RWU experience by: 

  • Supporting incoming students throughout their first year at Roger Williams 
  • Hosting workshops for the purpose of social and academic success 
  • Representing the wide array of academic programs offered on campus 

Here are some additional ways CSAS supports RWU students academically:

  • Consulting on study strategies, time-management, organization and other academic tips
  • Informing students about helpful resources, University policies, and opportunities to help most of your college experience
