When exploring or entering the field of academic advising, most people immediately consider the curricular knowledge advisors need to help students navigate from the start of their higher education career through to graduation. Those informational pieces are specific to institutions and thus require context for training. In this eTutorial, participants will receive an introduction to the 4 NACADA Pillar documents (Concept of Academic Advising, Core Values, Core Competencies, and CAS Standards), explore conceptual and relational aspects of academic advising to gain a better understanding of the breadth of knowledge that goes into creating equitable advising environments, and develop a plan for on-going training or professional development and professional involvement.
