Inspiring. Guiding. Leading your future. We believe academic advisors play a key role in supporting students to ensure they have a successful college experience. We also know, thanks to the Gallup-Purdue Index, that several key experiences directly correlate to a student's ability to graduate in four years. Those experiences include having a mentor, obtaining an internship or job, and being very active in extracurricular activities and organizations.
As advisors, we have the ability to encourage and guide students as they consider these options. We believe professional development is an important step to understanding how to best utilize our roles as academic advisors. This section includes some professional development opportunities we believe will enrich your experience as an academic advisor at Purdue.
