Division of Academic Advising
The Division of Academic Advising strives to satisfy intellectual curiosity and provide guidance on the transition to the job market for students and scholars at Stanford University. As such, most of our activities fall into three categories: intellectual interaction (e.g. talks by prominent speakers), experience sharing (e.g. lunches led by distinguished faculties or outstanding students) and academic-oriented information sessions (e.g. Mainland/Hong Kong ‘Talent Scheme’ talks). The past year saw rapid expansion of the division . In the coming year, we endeavor to develop the Division of Academic Advising by offering activities that are more diverse. For instance, while our traditional focus has been on Chinese students and scholars, one of our immediate plans is to reach out to a broader audience at Stanford University. We will also attempt to have more cooperation both inside and outside the Chinese student groups.
