The office of the vice provost for undergraduate studies aims to help organize excellent advising services for students and develop flexible and effective academic advising models. Academic advising is central to the undergraduate experience and helps students establish their academic and career goals.
Inaugural K-State/NACADA Summer Advising Institute
The office of the vice provost for undergraduate studies, in collaboration with the
national academic advising association (NACADA), is pleased to present the Inaugural
Kansas State University/NACADA Summer Undergraduate Advising Institute (May 22-23). All Kansas State University faculty and staff who have an interest in learning
more about academic advising are encouraged to participate in this two-day institute,
which is modeled, in part, on NACADA's five-day summer institutes. Participation
in the Institute is free for the first 100 registrants; we will endeavor, however,
to accommodate all who are interested in participation.
Those who represent college and department advising programs, Student Life, Undergraduate Studies, and other supporting retention and graduation programs, as well as individuals and teams of researchers (faculty and graduate students alike) whose scholarship bears on academic advising, are encouraged to participate in the Institute and also to display posters and/or staff informational tables during a poster/table display period.
The Leadership Studies Building will host all Institute activities, including two keynote speakers, numerous discussion sessions, and three provided meals.
