NACADA 2012 Site Evaluation

On February 1-3, 2012 a team of consultants from the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA) visited the University of New Mexico (UNM). The consultants’ charge was to conduct a thorough review of the academic advising program. In particular we were asked to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the program and determine whether or not UNM currently meets students’ advising needs and is in line with best practices in the field of academic advising.
