Advisement Subcommittee

Purpose Statement

The mission of Luna Community College’s Advisement Subcommittee is to improve and standardize advisement practices campus wide, to collect data during the advisement process in order to facilitate improved methods for addressing the personal and logistical issues of our student body, and to propose data-driven suggestions to be implemented at the LCC institution as a whole. The Advisement subcommittee is every student’s advocate and aims to provide students with equal, consistent, and meaningful advisement to meet their educational goals while guiding them toward completion of a certificate and/or degree.
