The mission statement for Clark College advising is:
By providing accurate, timely, and consistent information, Advising personnel, in collaboration with faculty, will guide, support, and help students develop lifelong learning skills; assist students as they plan and achieve their educational and career goals; and work with students to establish a lasting relationship with Clark College. As a result of working with advising personnel, students will:

The advising system at Clark College is an educational process that assists students as they pursue educational, career, and life goals. It is expected that students will build relationships with advisors during their time at Clark College and, over the course of their degree or certificate, will attain the objectives listed above.
