Undergraduate Advising Council to the Provost

Advising Network


The Advising Network, convened by the Chair of the Academic Advising Council, is a campus-wide association that facilitates communications among staff and faculty advisors regarding issues, policies, and procedures related to advising.  The purpose of the Advising Network is to:

  • Coordinate the delivery of information to staff and faculty advisors across campus
  • Enhance knowledge and expertise related to advising across the university 
  • Foster cooperation, collaboration and coherence among staff and faculty advisors 
  • Serve as an information-gathering center for advising efforts and issues across campus 
  • Promote and recognize the importance and role of advising as an integral part of a student's education 
  • Provide a forum to discuss advising-related issues and concerns
  • Gather and assess feedback from staff and faculty advisors regarding resources that would enhance advising effectiveness
