Meet the Undergraduate Advisors 

ATEC Undergraduate Advisors guide current UTD students through the degree requirements for a Bachelor of Arts in Arts, Technology, and Emerging Communication. In addition, advisors help students understand the different ATEC concentrations and courses within the degree in relation to their personal and academic goals. Each student has a tailored experience to ensure that each student is assigned to an advisor based on their last name. This allows each advisor to cultivate a lasting relationship with their advisees and provide relevant information to the student's experience. ATEC academic advising is a collaborative process and requires active participation by both the student and the advisor. Ultimately, the student is responsible for their own educational experience.

Meet the Advising Peer Mentors

Advising Peer Mentors are current ATEC students who have been trained to assist current and prospective students in navigating the ATEC concentrations. As Advising Peer Mentors, they assist with schedule planning and registration, demonstrate advising technology, discuss the program with prospective students, and develop and implement programming for their peers. Additionally, they oversee our front desk, answering the phone and email, checking in students for appointments, and assisting with paperwork.

*You can contact ATEC Peer Mentors by emailing ATECadvising@utdallas.edu, by posting on the AskATEC Team or visiting the Welcome Center, ATC 1.701.
