Embracing the CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies’ vision of driving justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion, the SLU Academic Advising Center is committed to making higher education attainable to all by addressing academic barriers that working adults face. We also strive to support students with diverse backgrounds through experiential learning and other opportunities to exercise leadership skills, especially for those looking to develop and advance skills and careers in public service and social justice activism.
An essential part of student success at our school, the advisement relationship not only serves as foundation for students navigating degree and certificate programs, but also as a space for students to identify their academic, professional, and activist goals. Through advisement, students connect with appropriate campus and university resources and professional opportunities.
The SLU Academic Advising Center is one of few sites in the country designed specifically to meet the needs of working adults with diverse backgrounds. We offer worker-friendly schedules, and varied advising philosophies and modalities, such as one-to-one meetings, interest group advising, and targeted workshops for learning communities.
