Meet the New Academic Advisor for Neuroscience

rebecca kranitz advising a student

We are very pleased that Rebecca Kranitz has joined the team of Academic Advisors in College of Humanities & Sciences and will be advising Neuroscience majors. To better serve students, UM has been shifting to a system that utilizes professional Academic Advisors to assist with course registration, registrar paperwork and any other issues that might arise as students complete their degrees at UM. This also frees up faculty to invest more time mentoring students, connecting them with research and internship opportunities, as well as sharing advice on career development in the fields of neuroscience.

Rebecca Kranitz knows first-hand what it is like to be a student at UM, as she graduated with an M.S. in Geography in December 2017. Indeed, she is continuing to keep her hand in the classroom, where she is also serving as a lecturer in the W.A. Franke College of Forestry & Conservation. Students who have declared neuroscience as their primary major, should meet with Rebecca at least once a semester to choose classes and to receive an advising pin. Rebecca will also help keep students informed of opportunities and events within the Neuroscience Program. The Neuroscience faculty are very pleased that Rebecca is joining our team and look forward to working with her to better support student success at UM.

Contact Rebecca or schedule an appointment at the H&S Advising Center.
