University Academic Advising provides central coordination for the Advising Network through the Provost Office to enhance the campus-wide student experience with academic advising in collaboration with colleges and departments who provide the oversight and delivery of advising services. This framework benefits from university-wide institutional structures synergistically collaborating with departmental and disciplinary approaches to advance academic advising on this campus. 

University-wide coordination provides a foundation for enhancing equitable student advising experiences, determining strategic outreach, and utilizing data to increase the positive impact of advising services. University-wide advising training, professional development, advisee caseload management technology, and communication supports ASC/Advisors to be successful in their work.  

College and departments implement advising services integrating university strategies and goals with tailored approaches specific to department structures.  Colleges and departments supervise ASC/Advisors and provide training and support specific to their area.  The advising network is connected within departments and colleges, and as a university-wide network.
