Peabody Advising

Advising at Peabody provides students with resources to support their educational journeys. Studio faculty are important mentors to students as they progress through their major studies and develop as young professionals. Peabody Advising supplements this faculty mentorship and is dedicated to partnering with students to shape their academic experiences through on-going conversations about

  • learning opportunities and challenges
  • curricular choices that optimize and individualize their Peabody education
  • advancement through academic programs
  • administrative policies and procedures
  • identification and utilization of resources
  • time management and study skills
  • personal and educational goals  

The Peabody Advising Partnership

Peabody Advising and students build relationships that foster students’ acquisition of skills and knowledge to thrive at Peabody and prepare for their futures. Student participation in this relationship is integral to its success and students are encouraged to meet regularly with the Director of Advising. Additionally, understanding the roles of students and advising makes for a better advising experience.
