Welcome to the University of Wisconsin System’s 360 Advising site!

Strong academic advising helps increase retention and graduation rates and supports the academic, career and personal success of students. UW System describes strong advising as “360 Advising,” a holistic approach that surrounds students with a coordinated network of timely, high-touch, intensive support to ensure their academic progression to degree completion.

The 2020FWD Strategic Framework included 360 Advising as a priority to improve student success “by expanding the use of predictive analytics, intensive advising, and other advising practices that provide timely support to students.” UW System formed a 360 Advising team to analyze student outcome data, existing advising structures, and best practices used within and beyond UW System institutions. The team also engaged the UW System advising community to further shape strategies. The strategies underway are designed to promote credit momentum, provide technological tools, support professional development, and connect and engage the advising community systemwide.

UW System recognizes the caring and committed advisors who make a difference every day in the lives of students. The 360 Advising strategies build on their good work, expand advising capacity, leverage system resources, and support quality advising that promotes student success.

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.

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.
