Advisor Retention & Training

Housed under NACURH, the Advisor Retention & Training Program has been developed with various advisor needs in mind. ART currently consists of a 29 session curriculum, covering a variety of topics that you can explore during a virtual training, at the NACURH Annual or a Regional conference near you! The ART program has experiential requirements that will enable you to apply what you have learned in the "classroom", to what you will encounter as an advisor. Advance through the levels by attending all the sessions and completing the necessary experiential requirements.
