A message from the CS advisors:
As your advisors, we want to be clear with our students that we are committed to creating an inclusive, equitable, and safe environment for our campus community. We value our students’ identities and recognize the racist and oppressive systems in higher education that create challenges and pain that conflict with our commitment to our students. As advisors, we stand in solidarity with our students as we all tackle racist systems that create barriers to accessing a quality and safe educational environment.
We remain committed to evaluating ourselves, our privilege, and our advising practices to improve the student experience in the Computer Sciences Department and at UW-Madison. As part of our actions to dismantle oppressive systems, we are committed to providing our students a space to share their experiences, to be heard, and to be helped to the best of our ability. Our advising goes beyond just answering academic questions. We want you to know: We support you. You belong. You matter.
– Shelby, Madeline, Michael, and Mollie
Undergraduate Academic Advisors are now located on the 4th floor of tower #2.
**Computer Sciences fall semester advising will be offered remotely until October 1st. **
CS Majors: The CS Department has moved to assigned advising. Students can find their assigned advisor in the Academic Navigator via their MyUW portal. Sign up for appointments in the Starfish app in MyUW. Appointments are being held in UW Microsoft Teams (teams.microsoft.com).
Current UW Undeclared Students: Undeclared students are welcome to make an appointment with any of the four CS Undergraduate Academic Advisors. Sign up for appointments in the Starfish app in MyUW. Appointments are being held in UW Microsoft Teams (teams.microsoft.com). Appointments for undeclared students may be limited during peak times.
Drop Ins: Starting the week of September 7th, CS Undergraduate Advisors will be offering remote drop-in advising appointments for CS declared students and students interested in Computer Science. Students should utilize drop-in advising to ask quick questions (course selection questions, major declaration questions, etc.). For longer, more in-depth questions (current semester academic concerns, personal matters, long-term planning, etc.), please continue to use Starfish to schedule an appointment with an advisor.
Drop-in advising appointments will be held in UW Microsoft Teams. During the drop-in designated time, chat the advisor that is staffing drop-ins. Include your Campus ID so that we can look up any needed information. They will answer your chat in the order in which they were received. If they are chatting with a student at that time, they will let you know. Please stay online, and they will get to you as quickly as possible.
The following advisor will be available at the specified time:
- Madeline Juillard (email@example.com):
- Mondays from 1:00pm – 3:00pm
- Tuesdays from 9:00am – 11:00am
Quick Questions: If a student has a quick question, firstname.lastname@example.org is a great resource. You can expect a response within one business day.
