Meet the Staff
We are your College of Community & Public Service academic advisors. We come from varied backgrounds and life experiences. We have taught classes, been to graduate school, worked in for-profit and not-for-profit organizations, volunteered in our local communities, studied and lived abroad, and collaborated with colleagues all across campus. We help you plan your courses, talk about your chosen paths, think about alternatives, refer you to resources, celebrate with you when good things happen, and support you during more difficult times. We will be there for you from the time you declare your CCPS major or minor until you graduate with your CCPS undergraduate degree. Contact the CCPS Undergraduate Advising Center whenever you are not sure where to find the answers!

Where Are They Now?
The CCPS-UAC has had the pleasure of working with new student affairs professionals through graduate assistant positions in our office. We hire our graduate assistants from the College Student Affairs Leadership (CSAL) graduate program at GVSU. The pictures below are former graduate assistants in our office who have gone on to professional positions in the field across the nation. We are very proud of our former GA's and the work they did while in our office...and continue to do in the profession!
