Student Questions?

This site is designed primarily as a resource for Berkeley advisors. Students seeking general advising information might want to visit College of Letters & Science Advising, or consult the Berkeley Academic Guide.


Heather Peng from Berkeley's College of Letters & Science has developed a new approach to working with students in academic difficulty. The framework is based on 5 R's: Reflect, Reach, Redirect, Review, and Repeat. Read about the framework and learn how you might apply it in working with your students.


Offering a variety of workshops on specific topics, the program aims to expand core knowledge and skills, stimulate new thinking and approaches to advising, introduce new methods and tools, improve collaboration, and help advisors refine their advising values and philosophy.
