The UT Global Initiative trains new and experienced academic advisors for the rigors of today’s diverse institutions of higher education. Our programs highlight methods of academic advising, college student development theory, assessment, and strategic advising models. This approach emphasizes practical methods for a wide range of academic advising groups including first year advising, faculty advising, program development, and strategic advising.
Our programs can be delivered as stand-along workshops or symposium talks, or can be reorganized to fit client needs. We work with each client individually to provide customized content and style that fit the needs of the institution. UTGI’s academic advising trainings may take place at a host institution, online, or in Austin, Texas.
UTGI’s academic advising services employ the expertise of UTeach-Liberal Arts Advising Services. Their advising office has received national recognition and is dedicated to providing high-level advising workshops in topics like:
- Academic advising styles

- College student development theory
- Course planning

The UT Global Initiative creates customized programs to meet your organization’s particular needs for direction and management. The leaders on any academic campus have a substantial impact on educators, staff, and students. Our seminars and workshops specifically for those in academic leadership take into consideration the unique role administrators play in providing educational opportunities.
