Working with an Advisor

In order to help the advisor understand your expectations of his or her role, your group should complete the advisor expectations worksheet at the beginning of the academic year.  Once the members have given some thought to each question, share the information with the advisor and use it as a springboard for discussion.

At the end of the academic year, the advisor may appreciate feedback.  The advisor manual includes a self-evaluation form.  Your group may want to revisit the advisor expectations worksheet in order to provide your perspective on the advisor's performance the past year.  Be sure to discuss the evaluation form first with the advisor; if you want it to be a useful tool, both parties should agree to it first.
