Advisors in Child Studies

Advising is an important part of  the educational process at WKU. Within the Child Studies concentration, the faculty advise the students. The Child Studies faculty are invested in the students and want to guide them not only through what courses to take, but also internship options, career opportunities, and other life experiences.

Thus the student's advisor will be one of the following faculty members:

                       lady with dog   Dr. Darbi Haynes-Lawrence                                lady  Dr. Qinfang Song


                       lady   Dr. Doris Sikora                                                     lady  Dr. D'Lee Babb


Advisors are assigned by Mrs. Warden.  Contact Lauri.Warden@wku.edu or 270-745-4352 to be assigned an advisor.

 You must see your assigned advisor each semester prior to registering for classes (this is assuming you have declared your major, and have been assigned an advisor). Each student has an "Advising Hold" on their record until they meet with their advisor. After a student meets with his/her advisor, she will lift the hold on the students record, allowing the student to register for courses.

Remember, each advisor sees many students, therefore waiting until the last minute to schedule an appointment is not recommended, as there might be difficulty getting into the advising schedule.
