Learn how to build a strong partnership between advising and career services as part of a larger student success network.

Institutions everywhere are looking for ways to integrate academic advising and career services functions into a coordinated or unified approach. Join us online to learn how Florida Atlantic University was able to cross-train their advising and career services teams to gain an understanding of each other’s knowledge base and ultimately build a more cohesive model. You will learn how to accomplish this difficult work on your own campus.

Note: This training focuses on how your teams can build the right structures to enable effective interactions with students; it will not focus as much on specific interactions with students.

Who Should Attend

This program is designed for leaders of advising and career services who are looking to develop stronger partnerships between the two offices.


This webcast will focus on how you can cross-train advising and career services staff to help both teams better understand how:

  1. Coursework supports particular career paths
  2. Student interactions can be made more consistent and impactful
  3. A central communications database is integral in providing informed, seamless support
  4. Shared messages at admissions, orientation, and FYE events help develop relationships with the university

We will close by sharing some advice on how this partnership can become part of a larger success network.
