Saint Louis University

The Integrated Advising and Mentoring System provides the structure that supports students through their academic careers at Saint Louis University. All advising units actively support students through a variety of methods and have a shared goal to enhance students' academic careers at SLU and beyond.

The System is made up of seven advising units representing the schools/colleges at SLU and four advising units representing special programs. Students are assigned to Academic Advisors and Faculty Mentors to assist with the decision-making process through their academic career.

The goals of the System are to:

  • Connect students to their academic communities by assigning Faculty Mentors and Academic advisors to each student
  • Facilitate an understanding of relevant academic policies and procedures
  • Support each student in assessing and pursuing his/her educational and career goals

The Student Outcomes for the decentralized Integrated Advising and Mentoring System focus on supporting the five dimensions of the Saint Louis University experience.
