Some key aspects of the University Advising Initiative, such as its funding, sponsorship by the provost, and overarching goals, have been in place since its inception. The remaining policies, procedures and operational details are to be determined by Working Groups.
Improvement to academic advising at MSU must respect cultural and organizational differences among colleges — heterogeneity of colleges is central to a university’s identity.
In order to make the process of crafting the structure and policies of the University Advising Initiative as inclusive, democratic, and efficacious as possible, each Working Group contains representatives from the colleges, including advisors and advising leadership.
