The Student Success and Advising Center is all about student achievement, quality academic advising, and meaningful involvement. We realize that transitioning from high school to college or transferring between colleges can be difficult, so we are here to help. College life brings with it new experiences as well as new demands for students, so having someone in your corner can make all the difference. We are primarily an advising center for freshmen and sophomore students, but also serve as a resource for all College of Education students by offering services and programming such as student success workshops, student engagement opportunities, and leadership development opportunities.
Advising is an ongoing process between advisor and advisee which allows students to reflect on their interests, abilities, and values in order to develop a plan of study – both in and out of the classroom – which maximizes their potential. Advisors are trained professionals who can supply you with invaluable information about majors, courses, careers, requirements, policies, social life, academic support and transition issues. In other words, your advisor is a one stop shop for your college-related questions and concerns.

Professional Development Opportunities for Teacher Education Majors
Effective teachers commit to furthering their own learning as well as their students' learning. Practicing educators take part in regular professional development opportunities in order to be effective and engaged teachers. The College of Education fosters this career-long commitment to learning and professional development by requiring our undergraduate students seeking initial licensure to complete a series of Professional Growth Units, or PGUs. All undergraduate students in licensure majors who entered NC State in fall 2011 or later must complete a minimum of 4.5 PGUs prior to graduation. All MAT students must complete a minimum of 2 PGUs prior to graduation.
The Office of Professional Education is excited to offer four professional development sessions to initial licensure teacher education majors every semester. Topics, descriptions, and dates can be found on the Office of Professional Education's website. You will need to sign up to attend any of these events via the link provided on the website.

Different World Views: How Are You Addressing Multiculturalism in Your Classroom?
Globalization influences the way we teach and learn. One specific way in which globalization influences the classroom experience is the diversity of cultures that our students represent. In this session we will discover ways in which culture influences the way students perceive education, student-teacher interaction and level of acculturation. This information will help educators better address the needs of multicultural classrooms.
