INFORMATION REQUEST: Advisors’ Social Media Usage Survey – please complete it by February 28th!


The Web/Newsletter/Social Media Presence Subcommittee of the Office for Advising Development (OAD) is interested in learning about the ways in which UIC advisors utilize social media.

Our goal in collecting this information is to determine which social media tools would best communicate advising related news/information and when is the most effective time to share updates via social media. Please share your thoughts with us by February 28th at the following link: OAD Social Media Usage Survey. Please note that the information submitted via the survey is anonymous.

YOUR RESPONSE NEEDED: Please help the IPAS Committee’s development of a new online system to support advising and success of UIC students.

The IPAS committee invites you to participate in a survey that will help us develop a new online system to support advising and student success at UIC. We know this is a crazy time of year for you, but your feedback will be essential to help us design a system that will work for you and the students you serve.

The survey will be open until December 15, 2015. You can access the survey through the following link:

A little more background: Vice Provost Pollack has charged the Integrated Planning and Advising Services (IPAS) Committee with developing an implementation plan for a new IPAS system that will support the success of UIC students and improve communication and collaboration between advisors across the institution. EDUCAUSE defines IPAS systems as the “institutional capability to create shared ownership for educational progress by providing students, faculty, and staff with holistic information and services that contribute to the completion of a degree or other credential.” We are seeking input from a variety of campus constituents about the types of data that would be most helpful to better support the students you serve.

If you have any questions or need additional information about the survey, please contact Peggie Garcia at
