Academic advising is a key aspect of the teaching and learning mission at UW-Madison.  Academic advising is a process in which students work in partnership with professionally prepared staff and faculty to develop educational and post-college plans.  The Office of Undergraduate Advising exists to cultivate an environment in which all UW-Madison advisors can best facilitate undergraduate education.
