All faculty and staff who teach, provide academic advising, or interact with first-year students at UNI are invited to attend this event.
An annual new and returning advisor inservice is held in September. The inservice 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.
