The Office of Undergraduate Advising is an ideal resource for both faculty members who directly advise students and/or faculty who supervise or work closely with advisors. We are happy to answer any questions about advising resources, advisor training and professional development, advising technology, advising-related assessment, advising program development, supervising advising staff, and more.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 608-890-4947 to let us know your needs.
New faculty advisors may benefit from attending Introduction to Advising at UW-Madison, a two-part workshop designed to provide a foundation for advising practice.
Open to supervisors of advisors or advising units, this learning community meets monthly during the academic year to discuss supervision best practices & challenges, share resources, and learn from others.
All faculty and faculty advisors are welcome to attend any of our professional development opportunities. Topics vary and encompass student development theory, advising techniques, and student resources.
The UW-Madison Advising Conference is the largest advisor professional development event of the year. The day-long conference features a keynote speaker, engaging concurrent sessions, and opportunities to network with colleagues.
