Onboarding New Advisors

Welcome to the New Advisor Onboarding Guide! As part of its mission to support and strengthen academic advising on campus, the Advisor Training & Professional Development Task Force (ATPD) has designed this guide as a way to engage new advisors and introduce them to the UC Davis advising community.

This guide is intended as a supplement to the specific and comprehensive training provided by your office. So whether you advise in a department or an academic service unit, are new to advising or just new to campus, we hope you will find this information and these resources useful.

Goals & Objectives:

  • Introduce new advisors the UC Davis advising community
  • Provide key resources and information
  • Facilitate networking opportunities
  • Help new advisors build a foundation for continued learning and professional development
