The Advising Network, convened by the Chair of the Academic Advising Council, is a campus-wide association that facilitates communications among staff and faculty advisors regarding issues, policies, and procedures related to advising.
The Advisor Development eLearning course provides advisors the core knowledge to successfully advise UNI students during their academic careers. This course is available to all undergraduate faculty and advisors through their eLearning site. If you do not see the course in your eLearning courses list, please let us know.
An annual new and returning advisor in-service is held in the fall. The in-service is facilitated by a faculty advisor and an advisor in the Office of Academic Advising. This workshop is an opportunity for faculty advisors to access the advising tools we have developed unique to UNI, and to network with current UNI advisors who can provide support throughout the year.
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.
To satisfy the Advisor Development Certificate requirements, complete all five Core Knowledge areas in the Advisor Development eLearning Course and three electives, including the self- assessments.
