Academic Advising aims to promote positive outcomes in MGSHSS students by supporting them through their journey at LUMS. It incorporates faculty, students and administrators who give both academic and non-academic guidance. MGSHSS advising works in tandem with the newly introduced online advising system to offer three layers of advising support. Staff academic advisors are always available to help students during enrollment periods and to respond to their academic needs. Faculty advisors offer two mandatory one-on-one meetings with the students each academic year. Apart from these mandatory meetings, students can set up appointments and discuss their academic progress, work planning charts and social adjustment issues. In addition, the Dean’s office trains Peer Advising Leaders (PALs) for first year and sophomore classes. These PALs act as the first point of contact for students and work closely with the main advising staff in providing peer to peer advising.
