Welcome!  Fall 2021 Updates:

The Human Ecology Advising Center is available and happy to assist you as we continue to work remotely while transitioning towards having an in-person presence in the office soon.  See details below about how you can reach us.

We are currently training two new staff members which we are very excited about!  We appreciate your patience and will continue to provide the best service possible while we are also operating at a reduced capacity.  

Stay tuned to your class Canvas pages for updates from your professors regarding if there will be any changes to how your class will meet during the first couple of weeks.
