2019 – 2020 Advising Summits

Our 2019 - 2020 Advising Summits are being held on Friday, October 18th (Fall 2019) and Friday, February 14th (Spring 2020). We are continuing our initiative to provide essential news and information to advisors. We want to connect them with programs and units around campus that are serving students through their varied identities and affiliations continues with highlighting units that our advisors have requested.
