Our mission: helping students, faculty and staff help themselves.

Welcome to the Eastern Michigan University Advising and Career Development Center!

Our mission is simple, vital and clear: we’re here to guide and support Eastern students, staff and faculty as they make important choices by keeping them informed and on-track for academic and professional excellence.

For students, our job is to help you choose the academic and career path that best fits your unique personality, abilities and values.

For faculty, our job is to facilitate your own educational mission; keeping you trained, informed and helping you help EMU students as best you can.

When you succeed, we succeed!
