The Center for Academic Excellence is located in the DiPietro Library on the Rindge

demic Services. All students are welcome and encouraged to use the resources of the Center.

Academic Advising

Academic advisors at Franklin Pierce University assist students in the decision-making
process and in making the most of the opportunities offered by the University. They help
students plan their program, set goals and identify and use appropriate resources.
At the College at Rindge, entering freshmen students are assigned to an academic advi-
sor who is also their instructor for the required freshman seminar. This structure facilitates
interaction between the student and advisor and allows the advisor to be aware of and
respond to individual needs. Academic and Student Affairs staff work closely with advisors
in response to these needs. Once the student has declared a major, a faculty advisor from
the major area of study is chosen by the student.

At the College of Graduate and Professional Studies, students work with advisors who
are familiar with and can address the needs of adult learners. Advisors work with students to
address career and life goals, assess skills acquired through the curriculum and experience,
enhance student capabilities to be self-directed learners, and engage in strategic relation-
ships and collaborative work both within the institution and externally with employers and
other organizations.

The Coordinator of Advising is located in the Center for Academic Excellence and is
available to assist students with special academic decisions and concerns. Students may meet
with the Coordinator to discuss topics such as choosing a major, self-designing a major or
minor or preparing for a meeting with a faculty advisor.
