Academic advisors offer guidance to undergrads for winter quarter planning

Among those at Stanford who have been integral in helping students navigate the academic and personal challenges brought about by the pandemic is the talented team of academic advisors in VPUE’s Office of Academic Advising. Since the start of January, these professional advisors have held more than 1,000 virtual appointments with undergraduates—and a number of those sessions have been prompted by the changing circumstances of Winter Quarter academic planning.

The Advising Resource Toolkit

These advising tools may be used cooperatively during an advising conversation or you may use them on your own, to help you prepare for a conversation with your academic advisor. They are intended to:

  • help frame your reflections throughout your time at Stanford
  • guide your strategic thinking if you face challenges or difficulty
  • facilitate your academic planning and intellectual development
  • support you as you consider post-undergraduate education
