Advisor Week

Advisor Week is one of the best weeks of the year!

(March 20th – March 24th, 2017)

Advisor Week is an appreciation and professional development week dedicated to advisors and happens during UIC’s Spring Break each year. OAD is pleased to partner together with colleges and units across campus to feature our own advisors presenting their knowledge and work, show advisors ways to empower themselves, bring creative and fun skill building sessions, and provide a number of opportunities to network and get to know each other better.

This year’s Fifth Annual Advisor Week, held March 20th through March 24th, had fourteen different events over five days! The events ranged from Coffee Talks, Advisor Common Readings, our Advisor Conference (advising community presentations) to our give yourself a break activities like our Painting Pottery Class to a Hull House Museum Tour to our special networking and social events including a baseball game and tailgating.  We planned something to keep everyone interested!

Our closing celebration sponsored by our partners was a fabulous time with great weather, wonderful food and drinks in their fun atmosphere for FLAMES FRIDAY! Check out our full schedule of events for this year! We’ve included links to handouts or presentation slides in the schedule of events where available!
