About the Office

The office of Undergraduate Advising Practice (UAP) is charged by the provost to work collaboratively with the undergraduate academic units in promoting consistent and best practice in academic advising. This includes oversight of the university’s professional development program for academic advisors and for the administration of AdvisorTrac, a university-wide software program used for scheduling student advising appointments and posting of advising notes. The UAP office provides leadership to university-wide advising committees, coordinates advising initiatives, and collaborates with Undergraduate Affairs and Student Affairs staff to promote student persistence and retention. The UAP office maintains a SharePoint site which serves as a resource to advisors and advising center directors. The office reports to the vice-provost for Undergraduate Affairs.
