Upon declaring the major, all Conservation Biology students are assigned to an advising team composed of a Faculty Advisor and the Student Services Coordinator, Ginny Jackson. Schedule an appointment with Ginny via Starfish.
Declared students are encouraged to meet with their Faculty Advisors and Student Services Coordinator regularly throughout the duration of their undergraduate experience.
Your Faculty Advisor provides guidance specific to the Conservation Biology discipline through discussions about undergraduate experiences (i.e. internships, research, volunteering, etc.) that will help prepare you for graduate work or a career after graduation.
You can make an appointment with your Faculty Advisor via email.
Your Student Services Coordinator, Ginny Jackson, is a professional academic advisor who provides guidance specific to the Conservation Biology discipline throughout your undergraduate career. Your Student Services Coordinator will help with course selection, registration, DARS, L&S degree and major requirements, and tracking progress towards graduation, as well as connect you to career and campus resources. Schedule an advising appointment with Ms. Jackson on Starfish or email questions to email@example.com.
