  • Ease student's transition to university
  • Help students progress through their degree requirements
  • Educate students about university policies and procedures
  • Act as a liaison between students and other programs, campuses, and universities
  • Connect students to people and resources at Grenfell Campus
  • Assist students with setting goals and making informed decisions
