Meet your WGSS Academic Advisor Malcolm Patridge!

I am here to help you as you pursue your goal of academic success within the WGSS department. As your WGSS Academic Advisor, I can help you make the right decisions in selecting elective courses and defining a path toward earning your degree. I can assist you in building your academic schedule, help you decide on whether a major or minor is best for you, and point you toward the best resources you’ll need to get where you want to go.

You will visit and meet with your assigned OUE Advisor if you have questions about GER or residency requirements, AP/Dual enrollment credits, course planning, degree progress, and navigating challenges or concerns that may occur, and can provide referrals to appropriate campus departments to aid you all in resolving concerns.

If you have broader questions beyond academics such as honors program, advice about graduate school, research/SIRE opportunities, career options, etc. I suggest making an appointment with the current Director of Undergraduate Studies, Dr. Elizabeth Wilson. Her office hours for the Spring semester are Tuesday 2:00 pm-3:00 pm. You can sign up to meet with her here.

Book your advisement appointment here!

Be mindful of my work schedule. I work from 9-5 Monday-Friday. I am in the office Mondays and Wednesdays and work from home on Tuesdays and Thursdays with a rotating in-office Friday schedule. If you book an appointment on Tuesday or Thursday it will automatically be a virtual appointment. 

See you soon!

Malcolm J. Patridge
