Advising Community on Advising Graduate & Professional Students

Grad Students & Doctoral Students AC Merger at ACD Fair in Phoenix

This community comprises professionals who advise post-baccalaureate students. We welcome all who work with traditional graduate students, professional degree seekers, adults returning for advanced degrees or certificates, and alternatively delivered and structured graduate and professional programs. Small in size but great in commitment, our Community provides a mutually supportive context for discussion of issues particular to serving these student populations. Ongoing projects include encouraging discussion of pertinent topics on our LISTSERV, providing resources to help advisors help students, and increasing our presence at national and regional meetings.

Issues in Working with Grad & Professional Students

  • The advising needs of post-baccalaureate students are no less complex than that of undergraduate learners and these needs are underpinned by an expansive body of adult learning theory and literature ripe for application.
  • The field of graduate, doctoral, and professional student advising and support is growing rapidly. Thus, the need for this professional community is never more needed.
