Advisors' Institutes 2016-17

Faculty and professional staff advisors are crucial in providing the educational support services and advisement to help students achieve their college degrees and move onto becoming contributing citizens. Each term, all campus advisors are invited to attend the Advisor Institute to: learn about changes in University policies and procedures; receive practical training on specific topics; discuss issues, concerns, and solutions with each other and university administrators; to meet and collaborate with colleagues from Academic Affairs and Student Life; and to strengthen our advising community as one voice for student success.
