NACADA: The Global Community for Academic Advising



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.


NACADA provides a Statement of Core Values to affirm the importance of advising within the academy and acknowledge the impact that advising interactions can have on individuals, institutions and society.

The Statement of Core Values consists of three parts:


While each part stands alone, the document's richness and fullness of meaning lies in its totality. The Statement of Core Values provides a framework to guide professional practice and reminds advisors of their responsibilities to students, colleagues, institutions, society, and themselves .

Cite the Core Values using APA style as:
