Who are Discovery Advisors?

Discovery Advisors (DAs) are motivated, creative, and academically successful student leaders whose primary responsibility is coaching their peers to achieve academic success. These students work in closely with several offices on campus including: each of the five schools’ undergraduate advising offices, and many of the Division of Student Affairs offices such as the International Student Scholar Services and Services for Students with Disabilities.


Discovery Advisors assist students in developing effective strategies in such areas as: study skills, time management, and note-taking. They encourage students at all levels to explore and utilize the services available to them across campus, including but not limited to, the Fleishman Center for Career and Professional Development, The Public Speaking Center, The Undergradaute Research Center, The Writing Center, Undergraduate Academic Advising offices, Tutorial Services, etc.  They also serve as a resource to promote the experiential learning opportunities offered by The Center for Civic Engagement, International Education and Global Initiatives, the National Student Exchange (NSE), etc. 


DAs are accessible through the Student Success Network available on the myBinghamton student portal.
