The Brooks College Office Of Integrative Learning And Advising

The ILA Office opened in August of 2012 as a part of the Brooks College of Interdisciplinary Studies, and is the first of its kind to merge two distinct areas: Integrative Learning and Academic Advising. Our mission is to serve students by providing timely, accurate, and engaging Academic Advising, while connecting them with unique, integrative learning experiences that further their understanding of themselves and the world around them. Our office staff believes that students, when given the space, can make incredible meaning between the theoretical and the practical. We encourage students to pursue their academic interests, but support them as they develop the skills and experiences necessary for transitioning to the next stage of their careers.

To serve students by providing timely, accurate Academic Advising, while connecting them with unique, integrative learning experiences that further their understanding of themselves and the world around them.
