Advising and Mentorship Resources for Students

Focused on Supporting You Every Step of the Way


Radford University's culture centers on you, the student.  From the very beginning of your time with us, you will have all the support you need to help you succeed and excel.  

In the Political Science Department, that commitment begins with each student having a full-time faculty mentor from the moment they join the Highlander family.  With our small class sizes and dedicated faculty, we work with you every step of the way from acceptance to graduation.  Learn more about our world-class faculty and what they can do to help you achieve your goals to prepare for an exciting career.  

There's even a one-stop location for any help you need along the way.  The Highlander Success Center features Academic Advising to help you choose the classes that are right for you, Student Success office with tutoring and academic support, a Career Development office that prepares you to join the working world, accessibility services, and more.
