Mission: The mission of the NACADA / NCAA Advisory Board is to develop and implement professional development programs and services for academic advisors, academic counselors, and academic and athletic administrators/staff who advise and provide academic support for student-athletes on college and university campuses and to support a strong and enduring partnership between NACADA and the NCAA.
Function: The Advisory Board will advise the Executive Office on strategies and activities for providing services to members and for organizational operations specifically related to NACADA partnership with the NCAA and advising student athletes.
Membership: Due to the nature of this Advisory Board's work, membership primarily consists of diverse and experienced NACADA volunteers: (1) current and immediate past NCAA Advisory Board chair, (2) current Advising Student Athletes Advising Community chair (3) NCAA Liaison (4) additional at-large positions, and (5) the association’s Executive Director. Additionally, we seek membership representing NACADA’s diverse composition of people and institutions; specifically this includes those from two and four-year, private and public, domestic and international institutions. Members serve a two-year term and meet on-site yearly at the NACADA annual conference. Online meetings via the Zoom platform take place as needed throughout the year.
