Each semester, Discovery Scholars meet with a UGS advisor and a Discovery Scholars Program advisor. DSP Advisors work individually with students to identify potential majors, career paths, internships, and other opportunities suited to students’ specific needs.

DSP advisors provide students with personal guidance, support, and advocacy. The DSP office offers a safe environment that is encouraging and supportive of students’ interests and challenges inside and outside the classroom.
