The University of Wisconsin 2020FWD strategic plan priorities include 360 Advising, which is designed to support institutional efforts to improve student success through high quality, intensive advising. To advance 2020FWD objectives, the UW System asked Provosts and Senior Student Affairs Officers to select a small team from their campus who work with advising in various roles, such as advising center directors, professional advisors, faculty advisors, student success staff, multicultural advisors, and administrators who have responsibility for advising and/or student success on the campus. The teams participating in the workshop discussed the current and potential application of best practices at UW System institutions.
