Academic advising

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.


2nd Annual Kansas State University/NACADA Winter Undergraduate Academic Advising Institute

The office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Studies, in conjunction with the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA), is pleased to present the second annual Kansas State University/NACADA Winter Undergraduate Academic Advising Institute (January 15, 2015). 
All Kansas State University faculty and staff members who have an interest in learning more about academic advising are encouraged to participate in this half-day institute, which is modeled, in part, on NACADA's five-day summer institutes. Participation in the institute is free for the first 75 registrants; however, we will endeavor to accommodate all who are interested in participating. 
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. 
All activities will be hosted in the Little Theater and will include keynote speakers and numerous discussion sessions.

University Advising Committee

The University Advising Committee will facilitate, coordinate, and develop advising practices university-wide which are appropriate to the diverse needs of our students. The charge will encompass, but not be limited to, promotion of innovative advising assessment practices; promotion of professional development opportunities; ongoing collaboration with the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA); coordination of academic, career, and student affairs advising in an emergent, university-wide advising community; improvement of student data systems for the benefit of the advising community; and facilitation of advisor-student dialogue. A standing subcommittee on pre-health advising will focus on the often complex and interdisciplinary needs of Kansas State University's approximately 2,000 pre-health undergraduate students.
