Welcome to ESES Advising

The Earth, Society and Environmental Sustainability Programs at the University of Illinois have been designed to optimize student choice.  If you are interested in sustainability, global change, environmental science/studies and you want a program tailored to your interests, we invite you to speak with an ESES advisor about how our program may be customized for you. The ESES program now offers walk-in advising - please see the Make an Appointment page for times and places.  We see students on a first come, first served basis, unless you schedule an appointment with us first: Make an Appointment.

ESES Advising Team

Meet the ESES Advisors. Since our advisors lecture within the School of Earth, Society & Environment, they have an insider's perspective that will aid your course selection and resume building. Visit an advisor soon to learn more about the ESES program, select classes, identify internships and career pathways plus more.
