Advising Community Dialogue (ACD) and Quarterly Advising Resource (QAR) sessions are opportunities for the wide advising community to learn, share, and grow together. Advising Community Dialogues provide space for collective dialogue around topics related to equity, various student populations, and other academic advising trends. The typical ACD format includes a 75-minute virtual informational presentation followed by a 75-minute interactive follow-up session in the following week. Quarterly Advisor Resource meetings happen at the end of each quarter and focus on relevant updates from campus partners (e.g., Admissions, Global Hub, Pre-Grad Advising, Health Professions Advising, etc.) that specifically impact academic advising and our student populations. The QAR sessions last 90-minutes to two hours.
Advising Community Dialogues
In 2020, "Coffee Talks" transitioned to "Advising Community Dialogues." The shift in title reflects the goal to create a space for collective dialogue that increases advisor competencies, specifically related to equity. These sessions will provide an opportunity for the advising community to connect regularly in a virtual space. The format usually includes an informational/large group discussion session followed by a relational/small group discussion session in the following week. We encourage the advising community to engage as fully as possible and prioritize attendance at these virtual events.

Quarterly Advising Resource Meetings
Quarterly Advising Resource meetings, or QARs, are opportunities to hear from Academic Advising Enrichment and campus partners about updates, events, and information that pertain to advising. These meetings happen virtually toward the end of each quarter. If you are, or know of, a campus partner who would like to share with the advising community during a QAR, please contact Nicole Wood.
