What is Discovery!?

Choosing a major is a big decision, but the decision doesn't have to be difficult. Students who are exploring potential majors have access to academic advisors who are trained to work with them through the Discovery! process. These advisors help students find their direction to an amazing university experience, an on-time graduation, and a future career field that will be fulfilling and rewarding.

So how does the Discovery! process work?

The Discovery! process incorporates an expansive list of exploration activities which students can complete on their own with the guidance of academic advisors. Providing students the option to choose their own Discovery! elements creates a truly individualized process geared toward meeting students where they are in their research endeavors. Activities include interviews, career assessments, real-world research, and other tools through our campus partners, all of which are intended to help students identify their values, interests, skills, and abilities. In one-on-one meetings with advisors, students identify a personalized Discovery! Action Plan which outlines steps to build upon the knowledge they have gained through initial research and guide further exploration. With valuable experiences that inform their thinking, students are better equipped and more appropriately motivated to be successful in their chosen fields of study. The Discovery! process provides flexible options in a stable environment which foster decision making and the identification of a best-fit major.
