The Office of University Advising

The Office of University Advising coordinates the certification and training of advisors and consults with advisors and administrators on advisement issues.

The Office of University Advising serves in a consulting role to the Advisement Forum and Advisement Council (AC) in relation to decision-making and a partner to the UVU Advisors in training and the administration of advisor training and professional development.

The Office of University Advising coordinates the certification and training of advisors across campus and consults with practicing advisors and administrators on issues related to structure, practice, assessment and evaluation of advising, etc. OUA coordinates campus-wide assessment initiatives of advisement and works with the AFPC and ALC to implement policy and procedures suggested by the ALC.

In addition to being a member of the AC, the Director of the Office of University Advising serves in a permanent consulting role to the AC, providing insights and suggestions based on research, practice, and experience related to advising. OUA works closely with the AC as a partner on the issues and needs of advisors in relation to training and development. Such issues and needs are examined to determine how they should best be addressed, as well as by which organizational unit and at what level.

Types of Advisors

Regarding representation, three types of advisors appear to exist at UVU, based on training and similarities in work: primary role advisors, support role advisors, and specialty advisors. These interests, as well as departmental and college/school interests should be adequately represented by the structure of the AC. Training should be developed to meet the needs of all in collaboration with advisors and administrators of all these areas.
