Fall New & Returning Academic Advisor In-Service

The annual new and returning advisor in-service is held in the fall semester in mid-October. This in-service, offered in a scenario-based format, is for faculty and staff academic advisors to get an in-depth look at guidelines, policies, programs and procedures related to academic advising, access the advising tools and resources available, and to network with current UNI academic advisors who can provide mentoring and support throughout the year.  To register for the current fall semester in-service, please follow this link.

Spring Academic Advisor Workshop

This event provides a venue to address information covering best practices, resources, and campus updates impacting academic advisors. It is a come and go event (no registration necessary) where advisors pick which sessions to attend.
