Assessment Institute

2019 Tentative Schedule

Thursday, January 31 - Saturday, February 2, 2019


We have fully revamped the Institute curriculum to better meet the needs of today's advisors!

From more flexible Work Group options to progressive plenary (general) sessions the Assessment Institute has been honed to provide new and seasoned advisors an in-depth look into Academic Advising and Assessment. While we have updated the curriculum, some things will stay the same including our outstanding networking opportunities and attendees' ability to take home an Action Plan that they can put to use on their campus.
