Academic Advisor Assignments

Contacting Your Advisor

The School of Social Work Office of Internships and Program Services is located on the 5th floor of Maguire Hall (1 E. Pearson St.).

Advisors prefer email communication from your LUC e-mail address. Please provide your full name, Student ID # with zeros, and contact information when sending an email.

Students should note that although part-time advisors check their e-mails frequently, an immediate response may not be possible. Please allow 2–3 business days for a response.

If an advising emergency occurs and an immediate response is required, students should call Administrative Assistant Doris Hernandez at 312.915.7707.
