The list of resource materials is subdivided into four categories: (1) "The Advising Process," (2) "Responsibilities of the Advisors," (3) "Responsibilities of Advisees," and (4) "Advisee Problems." The third section contains information pertaining to specific departments and to specific HBU regulations. This section lists regulations and responsibilities for academic advisors.
