Effective advising fosters a partnership between the student and advisor; each advisor engages in an ongoing process to meet the student's individual needs. As the student accepts overall responsibility for their education, the Culverhouse College of Business advisors commit to working with students through personal interaction and utilization of University resources to develop a plan based on their academic goals.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email the advising team at BUSINESSATBAMA@CULVERHOUSE.UA.EDU
