Student advising is an integral part of the student experience and is key to supporting students and their academic and personal growth. In alignment with the institution's mandate to deliver an exceptional student experience, The Academic Advising Review Team was tasked with assessing student advising services at the University of Manitoba and recommending improvements to these services based on their findings. The AART Report from October 2013 can be found below. One of the recommendations found in the report is to establish an institution-wide Advising Council to oversee the development and support of coordinated, high quality academic advising across the University. Please see the links below for further information.
An Advisory Committee to Provost has been established to review all proposed student surveys to ensure the quality of the survey, and its usefulness and applicability to achieving the University's strategic objectives. The Committee will review surveys that address current and former students, and alumni. Please visit the Office of Instititional Analysis website for information on guidelines and processes, terms of reference, and the institutional survey schedule.
