The Advising Academy fosters excellence in advising programs within all departments in the College by providing a solid practical and theoretical approach to advising in LSA.  The Academy also offers a wonderful opportunity to share best practices.  One of our primary goals is to enjoin all departments in a discussion of how we might build stronger intellectual communities within our respective areas.  

The Advising Academy will consist of separate morning and afternoon sessions. The morning session will showcase a panel of representatives from departments that have been particularly successful and innovative in the key areas mentioned above. 

The morning session is intended primarily for departmental Undergraduate Chairs/Directors, associate chairs and/or one senior advising colleague. The afternoon breakout sessions are intended for a wider set of participants, including morning attendees and one or two other representatives of departments’ advising faculty/staff.  Newnan Center advisors and liaisons will attend the Advising Academy and participate in the discussions.
