Excellence in Academic Advising

EAA retreat

In 2018, SUNY New Paltz was selected as one of 12 institutions nationally to participate in the Excellence in Academic Advising (EAA) inaugural cohort. The two-year EAA project is offered jointly by NACADA: The Global Community for Academic Advising and the John N. Gardner Institute for Excellence in Undergraduate Education. The purpose of the EAA project is to advance student learning, success, persistence, retention, and degree completion through a comprehensive, standards-based strategic planning process to promote excellence in academic advising.
