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.
The University Advising Committee and the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Studies is pleased to offer academic adviser professional development awards of up to $750 to subsidize participation in adviser-related professional activities and/or conferences and meetings during the 2014-2015 academic year. Applications are invited from any faculty or professional advisers at K-State (Manhattan, Salina, Olathe, or Global Campuses). Five awards are offered during both the fall and spring semesters.
