Future of Advising Project

Student walking on campus

The Future of Advising Project came from a desire to better understand the advising experiences of students, faculty, and staff. Thank you to all who provided input and insight throughout Spring 2017 and Fall 2017. As a result of the hard work of everyone involved in the project, both Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the Future of Advising Project have been completed.

Phase 1 of the Future of Advising Project took place during Spring 2017 and involved collecting information about the current state of advising at UW-Platteville through surveys, focus groups, and interviews with students, staff, and faculty.
