Academic Advisors and Faculty Ambassadors
Students will have a staff advisor in Academic Services, a peer advisor (Roosevelt Fellow), and a Faculty Ambassador while at Brandeis.
Staff advisors work in partnership with students to develop, maintain, revise, and implement their academic plans. From thinking together about majors and minors and building balanced schedules to aspiring to special research opportunities and clarifying post-undergraduate plans.
Roosevelt Fellows are junior or senior peer mentors who offer one-on-one academic advising and events throughout the academic year. Your Roosevelt Fellow will be able to provide a student's perspective on academics at Brandeis.
Brandeis Faculty Ambassadors are students’ initial bridge to the Brandeis Faculty. Students can talk with their Faculty Ambassador about how they decided to become a professor, what their research is about, how to connect with other faculty (including seeking research opportunities and letters of recommendation), and other such topics. Rather than traditional advising, the Faculty Ambassadors focus on cultivating human-to-human connections with students that support a sense of belonging and feeling welcomed at Brandeis.
