Academic Advisor Profiles

For all L&S Honors Degree candidates, your Student Center (accessible through your MyUW portal) will list each of the Honors Program academic advisors as your official, assigned advisors. Because each of us has a different style and areas of specialization, we encourage you to meet with whomever best meets your various needs — and your schedule, of course. When you find someone you really like, we encourage you to schedule regular check-ins with that individual, in order to establish a comfortable and honest relationship that can accompany you through your time at the UW-Madison.
