Work with an Advisor

Our approach to advising is student-centered, caring, holistic, inclusive, and culturally aware. Our advisors provide a safe, respectful, and confidential space in which to ask questions, discuss your interests, and express any concerns.

Meet with one of our professional career advisors to build a bridge from your academics to the workforce or wherever your post-graduation plans might take you. We can help you to identify your interests and values, explore career options, develop application tools such as résumés and portfolios, practice your interview skills, and search for internships and jobs. While many students think of seeking assistance from career services towards the end of their degree program, we work with students from their first through their final year to support students as they explore, prepare for, and engage with the career development process.

Career services supports all undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in the College of Design and offers assistance through individual appointments, classes, events, and online resources.

Our professional academic advisors collaborate with you to help you reach your personal goals, realize your academic potential, and experience professional success. We can assist you with understanding UO degree requirements and making decisions about courses and majors. We may also connect you with other resources and/or support services across campus and make effective referrals to help you successfully navigate the UO. We also encourage your sustained engagement in student and campus life to enhance the value of your college experience and to foster development of interpersonal and leadership skills.

We offer academic advising for all undergraduates in the College of Design. Three full-time professional advisors and peer advisors are available to work with all of our majors and minors, as well as prospective and exploring students. Graduate students may seek help from their corresponding department advising team.

Special Note Regarding Remote Advising

The success of our College of Design community is our main priority. Though we are not currently holding in-person advising appointments, we are working remotely Monday–Friday to continue to advise and assist students.
