2022 Advising Fall Welcome

The 2022 Advising Fall Welcome took a detour from the traditional model of informational updates in order to focus on community building. Academic Advising Enrichment (AAE) hosted the event that filled the Student Community Center Multipurpose Room. Kayton Carter, Executive Director of AAE, took time to recognize new advisors, provided an opportunity for reflection, and invited attendees to engage in an affirmation/gratitude activity in acknowledgement of the October 11 Day of Kindness. The event concluded with the 2022 UC Davis Academic Advising Awards Ceremony.
