Advising Resources

GDB Advising

GDB students have access to many on-campus sources of advice. Within GDB are GDB Academic Advisor Grace Landon; peer advisors (and current GDB students) Emily Jajeh, Nimra Nazar, and Sloka Suresh; and Lead Faculty Advisor, Professor Johan Leveau.

The peer advisors and major advisors are the first point of contact for general advising questions. Major and lead faculty advisors can give students further information about career opportunities, appropriate coursework, and/or internships.
