Academic Advising educates students, faculty, and staff on the IUM curriculum; interprets academic policies and procedures; and supports students in achieving their educational goals. Academic Advising is grounded in IUM’s mission: we focus on faith. We believe, that as a natural result of our profession of Islamic principles, we end up playing an important role in nurturing future teachers & leaders.
HOW WE WORK
Faculty advisors are full time members of specific academic departments who have been at the college at least a full year and have been trained by Academic Advising on advising IUM students. Faculty advisors usually work with 20–25 advisees. They specialize in advising in their field (Fiqh, Hadeeth, Tafseer, Qiraat, History, etc.) and are also trained to advise students on General Education issues.
