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.
