LEADR students have a team of dedicated advisors, who support them throughout their time at UC Davis. Students are encouraged to meet with their LEADR advisors, regularly, to ensure they are getting the most from their education. From connecting students to campus resources, to tracking progress in their coursework, these advising sessions are designed to support students in all aspects of their college life.
Advising is holistic and focuses on both academic and personal growth. Academically, the focus is on helping students effectively navigate degree requirements and College of Engineering policies as well as providing tools for academic success including time management, goal setting, etc. Emphasis is always placed on providing a safe, respectful, and confidential space for students to ask questions and express themselves.
As students advance towards graduation, emphasis is placed on career readiness and professional development for internships and job opportunities, as well as exploring other post-graduation pathways.
LEADR Advising Holds
In addition to meeting with their program advisor for the College of Engineering’s annual mandatory advising hold, all LEADR students have mandatory, quarterly, advising holds for their first 7 quarters of enrollment (Fall Quarter of the first-year through Fall Quarter of the third-year).
