360 Advising

The University of Wisconsin System promotes a holistic approach that provides students with a coordinated network of high-touch, proactive support to ensure their academic progression to degree completion.

It’s easy to get lost in such a large university and you always need someone by your side…this is who my advisor has been for me.

UW-Madison student

It was my advisor’s job to give me academic advice. She didn’t just do her job. She encouraged and supported me when the load was heavy. With her can-do attitude and positive approach, she helped me tremendously in reaching my goals.

UW-Green Bay student

Each student coming in for advising has different concerns and goals. Our challenge is to help meet each student where they are and help them get where they wish to go.
