Who is your advisor?

Advisors are assigned based on the students' last name (see here for caseload assignments). Your advisor's name is noted in WISER. Using the Mobile view, look for the advisor icon to find your advisor's name.  Using the Classic view, you will see your advisor's name on the Student Center page.  In some cases, students may have both a professional advisor and a faculty advisor. To contact your advisor, you may email directly from WISER or use the university directory. If you are unsure of who your advisor is, you may email us or call 617.287.5500 for assistance.
