Providing central coordination for the undergraduate advising and career services communities



To facilitate undergraduate education by providing central leadership, coordination, and resources to the UW-Madison advising community.


All students are empowered to create their Wisconsin Experience, and achieve academic and career success.

What We Do

The Office of Undergraduate Advising was created in 2011 as a signature investment of the Madison Initiative for Undergraduates (MIU). We provide centralized coordination and resources for key functions for cross-campus undergraduate advising and career services at UW-Madison, including training, technology, assessment, community-building, policy, and communication.
