Intro to Advising

Kick off your advising career at UW-Madison with this two-part workshop designed to give new advisors a foundation for their advising role on campus.

During Intro to Advising you will get to connect to new advisors, learn where to find tools and resources, get an overview of the advising landscape on campus, and ask your burning questions to a panel of experienced advisors!

Offered in the spring and fall. See the Events Calendar.

It was so helpful to have the opportunity to network with other new advisors, hear from experienced advisors, and get to know a bit more of the advising landscape.
