UC Davis Academic Advising Conference

UCDAAC LogoIn an effort to serve professional development needs and significant interest from the advising community, the Advisor Training and Professional Development Task Force (ATPD) established the basis for an annual campus-wide academic advising conference, the UC Davis Academic Advising Conference (UCDAAC), in 2015.  The conference occurs annually in Winter or Spring Quarter.  Academic Advising Enrichment sends out announcements about registration, volunteers, proposals, and any other pertinent details via the Advising Announcements Listserv.  The UCDAAC will inevitably shift and change over time based on needs and circumstances, but we are proud to have offered this professional development opportunity for the campus advising community every year for nearly a decade.

The 2015-2017 conferences addressed relevant themes in advising via expert presenters and topical breakout session tracks.  Based on participant feedback, the format shifted in 2018 and 2019 to provide an opportunity for the advising community to engage more deeply with facilitated discussion sessions about campus and broader academic advising focus areas.  As campus shifted to a new orientation model for 2020, the conference focused on orientation changes and preparing advisors for the transition.  The 2021 conference took place virtually as a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic.  While much of the content for the 2022 conference continued in a virtual modality, Academic Advising Enrichment (AAE) included an in-person lunch event to bring the advising community together after two years of virtual engagement. The 2023 conference will take place on campus, with session recordings available thereafter.
