NACADA's Academic Advising Today

This monthly newsletter is yet another benefit of membership in NACADA. For those of you that haven’t seen this yet, please take a look.

The article by NACADA’s President Josh Smith is a very interesting take on articulating the role of Academic Advising and how we can play a role in a student’s overall educational experience (co-curricular activities, development of other competencies, etc.).

Also please take a look at the article by NACADA’s Executive Director, Charlie Nutt on how NACADA has recently devised a plan that will guide the organization going forward. The plan includes a vision for what NACADA is going to look like 10 years from now and how it will get to that point - regardless of organizational leadership. I would like us to have a similar discussion (on a smaller scale, of course) about the Advisor Exchange, our evolution, and the role we might play here at the U of M down the road.
