Advising is a core component of the academic experience at Parsons. Students may encounter a variety of factors that can affect academic performance as they work toward their degrees, and advisors are able to address many of these issues from a developmental perspective. Because of their extensive knowledge of campus resources, advisors also teach students how to navigate the university system and act as liaisons between students and university services staff. Additionally, advisors help students learn how to communicate with faculty and other academic leadership when policy issues arise. The advisor’s role is to provide information and create a supportive environment.

Parsons Student Senate (PSS)
PSS is a student-run organization and forum where students can voice their concerns or ideas. The organization works directly with Parsons administrators and presents them with issues that students currently face. As a funded organization, PSS's goal is to give back to the Parsons student community and support peers in bringing their ideas and projects to fruition. PSS meets weekly, and all meetings are open to all members of the Parsons student body.
