The Global Studies advising staff is here to assist you in reaching your academic goals.

Why meet with an advisor?

The customized nature of this major makes it essential that you meet with an advisor on a regular basis. The responsibility for your success rests with you, the student, to exercise intentionality in your planning and to utilize the resources the campus and Global Studies advising staff have to offer during your time at Illinois.

Who is my advisor?



Global Studies students are not assigned to an advisor. We encourage you to expand your networks and to get to know all of the advisors in Global Studies.
