Training and Development

MIT values your knowledge and experience. The UAAP selected you as an associate advisor because you have the qualifications that are important to advise first year students effectively. By providing you with ongoing opportunities to improve your advising skills and by practicing what you learn, you will be able to reach your potential as a successful mentor.

You are expected to participate in 2 training sessions per year. If you are a returning associate advisor, this is a great opportunity for you to share your experiences with new associate advisors.

Associate advisor training centers around the important campus resources that will help first year students succeed. These resources, although for all students, are important for you to have knowledge of and understand in order to refer freshmen to them.
