How Franke GLI Advising Works

All Franke Global Leadership Initiative fellows are required to attend a Franke GLI advising session each semester for the first 4 semesters of the program. These advising sessions provide guidance about the Franke GLI program, help fellows stay on track and ensure each fellow understands the resources and requirements for planning a Beyond the Classroom experience. If you wish to meet with a Franke GLI advisor outside of required advising, advisors are available to assist you at any time. To schedule an appointment outside of required advising, please e-mail

Franke GLI advising sessions are intended to supplement, not replace your academic advising. All students must still meet with a major advisor each semester to get guidance on what courses to register for and to receive advising pins.

Advising Worksheets

The advising worksheet serve as a guideline for your four years in the Franke Global Leadership Initiative.

Note: For the Certificate in Global Leadership, students must receive a C- or higher on ALL Franke GLI-related courses.

Academic Concerns

If you have a concern that affects your academic performance in a Franke GLI course:

  • First, attempt to resolve the issue directly with your professor. 
  • If resolution is not possible or your professor is unresponsive to your requests within a week please contact the Program Director or Oversight Board Chair.
  • If the Director/Chair is unable to resolve the matter or is unresponsive to your requests within a few days please contact the Office of the Provost at (406) 243-4689.

If your professor, the Director/Chair and the Provost's Office have not addressed the matter to your satisfaction, then please contact the ASUM Student Resolution Officer  (243-5431).

The student grievance procedure requires that such grievances be brought to the Student Resolution Officer within 30 days of the act or omission that caused the grievance or after the date that the student knew or should have known of such an act or omission (see CBA Section 21.500).

It is very helpful to chronologically organize all documentation of interactions between you and the faculty, staff and administrators you contact. In addition, we recommend you write a chronological summary of your experiences in trying to resolve your academic issue.
