Academic Advising

The Department of Communication has two excellent award-winning academic advisors who are devoted to helping our students succeed in and make the most of their college experience. Jennifer Grimm is our full-time Department of Communication academic advisor located on the Macomb campus, where she assists our majors and minors in a variety of ways. Kenny Wheeler is our academic advisor in the Quad Cities, and he is responsible for providing guidance to our QC students.

Both Jennifer and Kenny will:

  • work with you to progress toward meeting degree requirements (this includes major, minor, general education and university requirements)
  • guide you in defining and developing a degree plan
  • assist in course selection to fulfill degree requirements and discuss academic progress
  • provide you with educational resources and referrals when appropriate
  • listen to your questions, concerns, or problems that you may have during your undergraduate academic career
