2017 – 2018 Events for Advisors

Happy Fall! We are looking forward to a great September and October!

Featured events through October

There’s a lot going on this Fall and we’re excited you’re going to be a part of it! The semester kicked off with a great 3rd Annual Advisor BBQ. This month we’ll be taking advisors to ILACADA Annual Conference to see some of our colleagues from UIC and around the state share their knowledge. We’ve got two Advisor Common Readings and you shouldn’t miss them and a new format for Advising Summit!
