Student success is the heart of what advisors do at UW-Madison. We believe advising is an instrumental part of a student’s education, and the foundation for their Wisconsin Experience. Advisors help students explore their passions, and connect their interests to experiences that will give them the skills and education they need to achieve their goals and make a positive impact on their communities, and the world.

“An excellent advisor does the same for a student’s entire curriculum that the excellent teacher does for one course.”
