The CTA's Advising Academy offers a yearlong program designed to help faculty understand their roles, develop their skills, and acquire the knowledge necessary for their work as academic advisors. While academic advising is often seen as a largely administrative task, good advising is much more than that. In fact, it is very similar to teaching, with learning outcomes that are very similar to those we aspire to in our classes. The goal of the Advising Academy is to help faculty draw on the knowledge and skills they have as teachers, to build their confidence and abilities as academic advisors.
