Beginning in 2019, Utah State University’s Strategic Enrollment Management Plan sought to increase student persistence, retention, and completion rates by improving outcomes for exploring/undecided students and cultivating advisor training and development rooted in core competencies and standards. Two offices combined to form the Office of University and Exploratory Advising (UAEA). UAEA strives to provide an advising experience that is proactive, strategic, data-driven, and rooted in the identities of the students and the advisors who serve them. We believe the best academic advising experience occurs when students and advisors build a relationship that helps students optimize their educational experiences and achieve their dreams, goals, and potentials. The UAEA team is one executive director, one academic advisor supervisor, ten academic advisors, one staff assistant, and five to eight student employees. UAEA serves 3000 students through academic advising and 90 academic advisors in Logan and throughout the state in professional development and training.
The Office of University and Exploratory Advising is a reporting unit to the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost. For more information, please visit https://advising.usu.edu/exploratory/.
