To help students establish a closer relationship with our faculty and to improve our majors' advising experience, the English department has unofficially assigned each English major to an advisor. Please see the table below for your advisor assignment. For your advisor's up-to-date contact information and office hours, please visit the tenured/tenure-track faculty contact information page.

Majors are encouraged to see their advisor at least once a semester to discuss major requirements and progress toward graduation. Feel free to see anyone else on this list if your assigned advisor is unavailable or if you already have a good working relationship with another advisor.
