Welcome, students and friends:
As the Provost’s advocate for students at the University of Louisville, I am here to help you in many ways. University systems, policies and procedures are complicated, lengthy and difficult.
Sometimes life becomes overwhelming. Sometimes an inability to comprehend the system and to work within it becomes overwhelming. Students become frustrated, their coursework suffers and many simply drop out or stop out.
That is why you need a Student Advocate – someone who is on your side. The Student Advocate has thorough knowledge of the University of Louisville, not just from one unit’s perspective but from a broad perspective. I will give you clear answers to your questions and help you navigate through the academic systems.
As your Student Advocate, I will give you information on support services and functions available at NO COST to you. I will help you understand academic policies and processes as they affect your academic and personal future. I will advise you on a confidential basis.
My services extend to all students, from freshman to graduate, doctoral students and professional degree students, at both Belknap Campus and the Health Sciences Center. I have strong sympathy with you as a student and a firm regard for institutional procedures to help resolve complaints and concerns.
I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 502-852-8113.
With best wishes for your academic success,
Prafula P. Sheth, Ed.D.
