What is UC Davis doing to improve advising for students? 

We are always improving our training programs for academic advisors. UC Davis has a wonderful program where experienced advisors—and student affairs experts—teach other advisors important skills so they can best support our students. They learn about our technology systems, best practices in working with students, and how to work with students from many cultural backgrounds. And all advisors complete it—so that’s a real sign of how much our advisors care about doing their best to serve our Aggies.
