Advising and Support
Babson is a vibrant, close-knit community where you’ll find faculty, student mentors, and staff committed to helping your student grow and explore. The amount of support and mentoring Babson students receive is one of the true hallmarks of the Babson experience. Resources abound on campus—whether an individual, an office, a building, or one of the resource centers. Our faculty members and dedicated staff are consistently recognized by our students for the personal attention and mentoring provided to them throughout their time at Babson and even after they graduate.
Faculty Leaders and Mentors
You’ll find our faculty members in more than just the classroom. They live and breathe Babson pride and community spirit. They are heavily involved in cocurricular programs and provide mentoring, insight, and real-world connections to our students. Nearly 50 percent of our more than 90 student clubs and organizations have a faculty member as their adviser, and a few clubs even have two! Faculty members also serve as advisers within the First-Year Seminar course, and many are advisers of current student businesses and board members of alumni businesses. It is fairly common to see faculty members at student events, athletic contests, and performances. More on Babson faculty can be found at Faculty and Research.
Students are fully supported from the first day they arrive on campus. All Babson College students are assigned to a class dean. The class deans provide support and are valuable resources for students in a variety of ways, including advising and curriculum support, adjusting to college and the community, career and concentration advice, and personal development and support. The Office of Academic Services assists students with academic and personal development through a variety of programs, including personal and academic advising and support, services for students with disabilities, outreach programming, class-based programming, and curriculum support.
Current students are some of the most powerful leaders for an incoming student. At Babson, there are a multitude of student leadership groups
that serve as role models for incoming students, including Peer Mentors, FME Mentors, Residential Assistants, and Peer Advisors, among many others.
