Who is my advisor?
All Human Development and Family Studies students at the Storrs campus are assigned to Kristin Van Ness, the full time professional Academic Advisor. The only exception is for Honors and Early Childhood Development and Education (ECD/E) students.
If you are an honors student, your advisor is Dr. Kari Adamsons. If you are in the ECD/E program, you will be assigned to one of three faculty who specialize in that area. All students can see their assigned advisor in the Student Administration System
All Honors and ECD/E students may make an appointment with Kristin Van Ness for general HDFS questions and concerns.
We do not have assigned faculty advisors for HDFS, but we encourage our students to build relationships with our faculty. Each of our career pathways lists faculty who specialize in that area and are available for specific questions.
