Advising week 2022 Banner

May 1-7, 2022

Welcome to NACADA's Global Advising Week webpage!  May 2, 1979 was the official date when articles of incorporation were signed creating NACADA. During the first week in May every year, we celebrate the work of advisors, tutors, personal tutors, counselors and coaches that advise students around the world. This year we will celebrate NACADA Global Advising Week during May 1-7, 2022. This global celebration, with our sister associations, UKAT, LVSA, ELETSA, JAAA, & CACUSS/ASEUCC, is our week to honor academic advising in its many impactful forms. All events for this week are free and open to all. How are you celebrating NACADA's Global Advising Week at your campus?

Live With & Cultivate Gratitude

Ways to Say Thank You

  • Administrators and colleagues could send thank you notes to advising staff, by email or with online greetings via social media.
  • Create an online bulletin board for students to express appreciation to their advisors (i.e., Blackboard, Canvas).
  • Use screen casting tools to narrate a short story about your advising team or colleagues.
  • Record short messages of thanks or kudos and text or email them to advisors/tutors.
  • Attach NACADA’s virtual frame to your profile photo to raise awareness about how impactful advising is on campus and in the lives of students.
  • Give a virtual gift (e-gift cards) to show appreciation or promise some institutional swag or a pizza party once you are back in the office.

Use these graphics throughout the week to show appreciation to the advisors on your campus.
