At Berkshire, few relationships are as important and meaningful as the one formed between a student and his or her advisor. While students are encouraged to look to all faculty members as mentors, each student is assigned an advisor who acts as an advocate, surrogate parent and friend throughout their time at Berkshire. In many cases, these relationships continue beyond Berkshire.
Advisors develop a supportive relationship with each advisee while maintaining frequent, informal and formal contact with parents.Advisors are the first points of contact for parents with any concerns about their child. In addition to regularly scheduled Advisee Lunch (held each Wednesday), students have the opportunity to meet with their advisor during daily office hours or other scheduled meetings.
