Through the Office of Advising Strategies, training is coordinated for both new and continuing advisors. New Advisors will go through 14 modules that are in an online Blackboard course that is maintained by the advisor trainer, 10 hours of outside program/college shadowing, and a series of twelve monthly gatherings designed to enhance advising competencies and community building among new advisors. Topics and guest presenters vary from month to month. For any questions please contact Shannon Saavedra at:
