Professional academic advising plays a vital role in the educational mission of Indiana University, complementing the work of faculty to create a comprehensive learning experience for all undergraduate students. As students explore their intellectual interests and goals, academic advisors partner with faculty, staff, and administrators to engage students in the university environment. Advisors are professionals, members of a community of higher education experts that . . .  foster students’ personal growth, enable students to explore their academic options, and develop meaningful educational plans consistent with their personal and professional goals.        – IU Bloomington Academic Advising Task Force, 2010
