Advising Programs Office

Our Mission

The Advising Programs Office (APO) cultivates quality academic advising for all Harvard College undergraduate students. The APO promotes the intellectual and personal transformation of students across the four years by encouraging exploration, reflection, and informed decision-making about curricular and co-curricular choices and opportunities. In support of this mission, the APO creates trainings, resources, and programs for a cohort of advisers which include faculty, administrative and residential staff, and upperclass students. The APO collaborates with colleagues in academic departments, partner departments in the Office of Undergraduate Education, the Dean of Students Office, and other constituents to ensure that students and advisers are well informed.
