Advisor Training Modules

Welcome to the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa! As an academic advisor, you have the opportunity to impact the lives of the many students that you will come to know.

The Council of Academic Advisors, or CAA, has created this training manual for both new and experienced advisors to ensure a comprehensive, unified approach to academic advising here at UHM. The manual is self-guided and intended to complement the training provided by your department, college, or school.

As you proceed, know that developing advising excellence is an experiential journey, and you will hone your advising skills over time. This manual is a great starting point, and we hope it will orient and connect you to the campus-wide advising community.

Again, welcome to academic advising at UHM — we truly value the role you will play in helping our diverse student body succeed!
