Becoming an Associate

Associate Advisor Position Description

Associate Advisors are MIT sophomores, juniors and seniors who provide academic support and resources to first-year students.  The Undergraduate Advising Center matches them with a faculty advisor of a traditional or seminar-based advising group.  Associate advisors compliment the advisor’s efforts by providing the student perspective on MIT academics and student life. In addition, associate advisors informally support the first-year students living in their dorms. 

Associate Advisor Steering Committee Description

Members of the Associate Advisor Committee are responsible for improving to the quality of advising and contributing to the UAC’s first-year programs.  UAC advisors rely on their student perspective to improve the experience and success of first-year students.
