Who Are College Advisers and What is their Role
The College Advising strategy in Michigan has been in place since 2010. The work began as a pilot program, a partnership between the College Advising Corps, the University of Michigan, and the Michigan College Access Network. Since 2010, the number of advisers across the state has grown significantly with over 90 advisers serving in more than 100 high schools across the state. As the number of advisers has grown, questions have surfaced from school counselors who are often not currently working with an adviser but have heard of the various programs across the state. You will hear from the Michigan College Access Network Executive Director and the AdviseMI Co-Directors on the ins and outs of college advisers, who they are, and their role in high schools across the state.
