Webster Advising Day and NACADA in St. Louis
Webster colleagues gathered in St. Louis from around the network to discuss, learn, and promote high standards in academic advising.

Over 30 Webster colleagues gathered in St. Louis for Webster Advising Day, a professional development opportunity focused on bringing together Webster colleagues from around the network to discuss, learn, and promote high standards in academic advising.

Advising Day was held at the Gateway campus with a welcome provided by Vice Provost Nancy Hellurud, whose remarks highlighted the importance of academic advising and its impact on student success, retention, persistence, and graduation. Concurrent sessions included opportunities to explore concepts related to the Global Citizenship Program, Becoming a CARS Ninja, All Things MBA, Study Abroad, The Undergraduate Advisor’s Toolkit, Understanding Webnet+, Working with Webster Military Students, and more.

The day concluded with a networking reception for attendees. Following Webster Advising Day, Webster colleagues continued their professional development journey by attending the Global Community for Academic Advising Annual Conference (NACADA) which hosted over 3200 participants from around the world at America’s Center, Wednesday, Oct. 11 through Saturday, Oct. 14.
