Advising Symposium

Advising for All: Adapt, Advocate, Achieve

The 2024 ACUM Advising Symposium is a free two-day conference open to all staff in advising and student support positions. Presenters and attendees will engage in dialogue about how elements of the symposium themes "Adapt, Advocate, Achieve" show up in advising practice or personal and professional development for both students and advisors. We look forward to creating space to collaborate with colleagues from all of U-M’s campuses.

A special thank you to Perry Fittrer, LSA Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Education and Student Academic Affairs, and Valeria Bertacco, Vice Provost for Engaged Learning, for sponsoring this year's symposium.
