Visiting Advisor Program (VAP) is designed to advance and support professional development objectives and goals of advising staff through mutual educational and cultural exchanges between institutions across the globe. The VAP ties in NACADA’s commitment to support continuous learning opportunities as outlined in the new academic advising core competencies with NACADA’s vision for global engagement. Experiences gained through intercultural exchanges will facilitate the implementation of best practices in academic advising globally and will strengthen international understanding and capacity in service to students. Participating institutions will have the opportunity to exchange information and ideas, thereby gaining a greater understanding and appreciation for other institutions and cultures. The VAP cultivates collaboration across the international academic advising community that also supports other institutional strategies including international, strategic enrolment management and the campus strategic plan.
Setting up a VAP can take time. If you are interested in participating in a VAP, it will take planning and you will need to accomplish a number of tasks. The links below provide further information about VAPs and the application process.
