The mission of the Academic Advising Center at Springfield College is to assist each student in exploring learning opportunities inside and outside of the classroom, while successfully negotiating the academic rigors of the college environment. In addition, academic advising assists students in formulating and following an educational plan that prepares the student for leadership in service to humanity and is consistent with the student’s values, abilities, and career and life goals.
