Academic Advisor & Student Support Coordinator

 Michelle Brooks

Michelle Brooks

Michelle Brooks serves as the primary Academic Advisor for all undergraduate students in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences. The Department recommends that students see their Academic Advisor at least once per academic year. This allows students to plan according to course availability and pre-requisites. Many courses within the Department are only offered certain years or semesters. It is critical that students work closely with an advisor to graduate in a timely manner. Transfer students are also encouraged to meet with the Department advisor early in their academic career, even prior to admission to The University of Utah.

Students may see either Dr. John Horel or Dr. Kevin Perry. Students with an interest in a traditional meteorology career usually migrate toward John Horel. Students that are interested in more broad-ranging career alternatives usually migrate toward Kevin Perry. 

We have an open-door advising policy for our students which means that you can stop by at any time for advising.  If we are available, then we will gladly speak with you.  If you would prefer to schedule an appointment to ensure availability, the best way is to click the link below the advisors' photos to send them an appointment request via email.
