Content

The content is based around the NACADA Academic Advising Core Competencies.

  • 3 Canvas Modules are completed at one's own pace during a two week period, on average, participants take 8-10 hours to complete these modules
  • One three-hour Zoom or in-person meeting at the end of the program allows for case studies, conversation, and sharing of best practices with colleagues.
  • A final reflection assignment will be completed in the two weeks following the group meeting

Master Advisor Certification Profile Badge

Staff and faculty who complete the Master Advisor Program will receive a certificate, and have the Master Advisor Certification badge applied to their UWL profile.

All participants who complete the program will have continued access to the resources and materials covered through a Canvas course in which all who have Master Advisor Certification will be enrolled.


Continuing Professional Development

Master Advisors must complete two hours of continuing professional development within the following two-year period. Various training opportunities that relate to advising can be considered to count towards this requirement and will be submitted via the Master Advisor Canvas course.

Questions about the content of the Master Advisor Program can be directed to Jamie Schweiger.
