About the Theme

The theme of the NACADA 24-hour virtual academic advising conference is “Building Community and Embracing Change: The Global Voices of Women in Academic Advising.” The impetus is to identify barriers and understand differences by building strong communities in academic advising.

This conference provides an excellent opportunity to share the leadership stories of women, gain a greater understanding of the unique challenges faced within the profession, and more importantly to give deeper meaning to the individual lived experiences of those we serve. In addition, this conference will be an exceptional professional development opportunity for anyone interested in advancing their skill set, gaining the tools necessary for student success, and understanding analyses and approaches to gendered experiences in higher education.
