Purpose and Goals


We are committed to building community, sharing resources, and developing advising continuity for the benefit of students, advisors, and other stakeholders. As a group, we value: 

  • Centering equity in our work 
  • Centering care for all stakeholders and community members

This community building work is essential, regardless of how advising is organized or implemented across campus.


  1. Empower advisors to leverage campus resources to the benefit of their students and also to be efficient and supportive of advisors' time. 
  2. Create awareness of the role and capacity and reality of advising services on campus.
  3. Foster community among advisors in order to share practices, information, and promote awareness of what’s going on.
