NACADA: The Global Community for Academic Advising is comprised of professional and faculty advisors, administrators, students, and others with a primary interest in the practice of academic advising. With diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences, NACADA members advise in a variety of settings and work to promote quality academic advising within their institutions.

In 2005, NACADA President Jo Anne Huber charged a Task Force chaired by past NACADA Presidents Ruth Darling and Eric White to develop an association's statement on academic advising, The work of the Task Force was presented at all 10 NACADA Region Conferences in Spring 2006 and the comments, recommendations, and input from all members were incorporated into the Concept of Academic Advising Statement approved by the Board of Directors in October 2006.

Therefore,the association statement is a result of extensive grassroots member input and involvement. It is the intention of the association to provide a useful document to its constituents, reflecting as many of the current views and philosophies of our members as possible.


Listed resources are member suggested; as such, listings are not comprehensive in nature. Members are encouraged to suggest resources they find helpful to their advising practice. Listing of commercial sites does not imply NACADA endorsement.
