GDB students have access to many on-campus sources of advice. Within the GDB major, these include Academic Advisor Brandy Fleming, Peer Advisor (and GDB student) Jackson Stuart, and Master Advisor Prof. Johan Leveau. In addition, each student is matched up with a GDB Faculty Advisor.
These GDB advisors have different roles. The Academic Advisor and Peer Advisor are typically the first point of contact for any advising questions by students. A Faculty and Master Advisor can give students further information about career opportunities and appropriate coursework and/or internships that may help better prepare them for that career.
Students also have access to advising at the college level: CAES advisors (both staff and peer, see http://www.caes.ucdavis.edu/students/current) can address questions about college and university requirements (these are different from and in addition to the requirements of the major), how to change a major, and they can do a degree check (an assessment of where a student stands with requirements). CAES advisors also deal with personal difficulties that affect a student’s academics or a student’s concerns about achieving Good Academic Standing (GPA of at least 2.0 each quarter).
Other, more specialized sources of advising pertinent to the GDB major are the Internship and Career Center (ICC, https://icc.ucdavis.edu/services/advising.htm) and Health Professions Advising (http://hpa.ucdavis.edu).
Current GDB students can schedule an appointment with their Academic Advisor online (https://appointments.ucdavis.edu).
