What is a LEEP Center adviser?

LEEP Center staff also serve as advisers who help students weave together all aspects of their undergraduate experience to help them prepare for a meaningful life beyond Clark. LEEP Center advisers complement the work of pre-major and major advisers. Every first-year student is assigned a LEEP Center adviser, who will meet with you individually and in groups throughout your tenure at Clark.

You will be able to rely on your LEEP Center Adviser for guidance regarding:

  • Interest exploration
  • Major declaration
