Master Advisor Program – Fall 2016

Tuesdays from 12:10-1:05 * Peckham Hall 101

The Master Advisor Program is a training and recognition program. This comprehensive training includes the conceptual, informational, and relational parts of the advising process. We challenge advisors to complete the full Master Advisor Program, participate in the individual advisor evaluation process regularly, and use the information gained through training and evaluation to improve their own advising.

There are multiple ways of completing the Master Advisor Program:


  • Attend the annual full-day Master Advisor Program in May
  • Attend the weekly one-hour in-person workshops in the fall semester (day/time to change each fall)
  • Complete all of the Master Advisor modules online through Moodle (self-enrollable course, self-paced)
  • Attend some of the weekly in-person workshops and complete the online Moodle modules for the rest


Complete all seven modules to earn the “Master Advisor” designation!
