Learning Communities

The Office of Undergraduate Advising, in partnership with Learning Communities for Institutional Change and Excellence, coordinates three learning communities for members of the advising and career services community. Interest surveys are sent out via the advisor-link listserv each spring/summer to gather applications for the following fall. To be eligible to participate applicants must be available for the majority of the meetings.

The Racial Justice and Healing Collective

The Racial Justice and Healing Collective, formerly Art of Advising,  is a 14-week, facilitated journey for UW staff whose work supports students or staff development and success. Using The Racial Healing Handbook by Dr. Anneliese A. Singh as a guide, we will read, reflect, challenge, and engage ourselves and each other in caucus spaces across race and ethnicity.
