This professional development opportunity is hosted by the JMU Advising Resource & Collaboration Network and co-sponsored by University Advising, the Center for Faculty Innovation, and JMU Libraries.

This day is an opportunity to share, celebrate, and learn as a community of individuals dedicated to advising with the goal to advance and elevate the function of advising at JMU.
