PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT: Fall 2018 Advising Summit Presentation and Documents available!

Our Fall 2018 Advising Summit was held on October 5, 2018 and featured a range of information for advisors including a new International Internships initiative, an introduction to the new NACADA Core Competencies, information on the UIC recruitment and enrollment landscape, and information and case studies on advising Asian American students.

Thank you so very much to our presenters and to you for spending the afternoon learning with us! The agendas, presentations, and materials from our speakers can be downloaded below and will be available next week on
