Professional Advising Resources and the Importance of Advising

National research has shown that consistent and effective advising can lead to improvements in retention, graduation and overall satisfaction with the college experience. Resources on this webpage are made available to assist UW faculty, staff and professional advisors alike in providing a uniform and consistent advising experience across campus. Obviously, there will be variations within each college and department in how they provide specific advising to their students; however, it is important to have as much uniformity as possible to ensure each student at UW has a positive advising experience. 
Each advisor develops his or her personal style for conducting appointments with students. The National Academic Advising Association (NACADA) has many resources related to advising that may be useful for faculty, staff and professional advisors to review. The Advising • Career • Exploratory Studies Center (ACES) recommends developing a professional relationship with a clear understanding of the responsibilities of both student and advisor in the advising process. In the words of NACADA “I Advise…You Decide!”
