Contact Claudia Castaneda, Student Affairs Coordinator, email@example.com.
The Student Affairs Coordinator is available to meet with students who are interested in pursuing the Feminist Studies major/minor or LGBTQ Studies minor in person or via Zoom though most questions can be answered via a few email exchanges. Some walk-in appointments are available, and appointments are encouraged. Advising sessions run from 15 to 30 minutes.
After a student’s initial visit, the student will be added to the departmental e-mail list serve - it is the source for all departmental communication including Feminist Studies sponsored events, courses, information on registration, commencement, research and internship opportunities, and paid work. If a student is dropped from the list serve inadvertently or due to U-mail quota overages, resubscribe by emailing the advisor.
Semi-regular advising sessions are a good idea to track a student’s progress in the major or minor. In addition to major and minor petitions, students will need to meet with the advisor for signatures and/or assistance on the following forms: proposed schedule for graduation, EAP applications, course substitution, proposal for independent study, honors program application, Feminist Studies/LGBTQ Studies Research Community application, late/retro add, late/retro drop, and exception to independent study regulations.
Peer Advisors are also available in-person at certain times of the week (subject to change each quarter). Appointments are highly encouraged but not required for peer advisors.
Their email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
