The Brooks College Office of Integrative Learning and Advising

The Brooks College Office of Integrative Learning and Advising offers many services to the students, staff, and faculty at GVSU including; Advising for Brooks College, Co-Curriculum Program Designations, Brooks College Student Services, and the Co-Curricular Peer Mentor Program. Our office is the first of its kind to merge two distinct areas: Integrative Learning and Advising.
