2017 UC Davis Academic Advising Conference

2017 Advising Conference Header

The campus advising community will come together again for the 3rd annual UC Davis Academic Advising Conference on May 2, 2017. The theme of the spring 2017 conference is ‘Promoting Educational Equity through Advising.’ We are pleased to announce that the conference received special funding this year to focus on equitable advising for all students, with special attention directed to students coming from LCFF+ financed high schools. Schools supported by Local Control Formula Funding Plus (LCFF+) include those with a large proportion of students who are English-learners, qualify for free or reduced-price meals, or are foster youth, as defined by the California legislature.
