What is an advising philosophy?

An advising philosophy is a statement that guides your decisions, determines goals and objectives, and forms a foundation for advisement strategy and delivery (Dyer, 2007). This might include the typical structure of your advising sessions, student development theories that you consider, or professional values.

How long should an advising philosophy statement be?

The length of the statement matters less than the quality of ideas and their significance to the advisor. A one page philosophy may suffice for many new advisors; others with more experience or who have developed multiple areas of interest and involvement may need multiple pages to fully convey their philosophy.
