Advisor Reading Groups

In recognition of the growing body of scholarly literature within the field of academic advising, as well as the emphasis on continuing and self-directed professional development, the ATA seeks to encourage scholarly engagement, the discussion of research, and the enjoyment of reading through advisor-led reading groups.

As a joint effort between the ATA and the WSU Academic Advising Council (AAC), advisors are able to submit a request to host a reading group through an online submission form. You can submit the reading selection you are interested in discussing and choose from one of several scheduled dates to host. Reading Groups will be announced through the ATA Canvas site and on this webpage. Check back frequently for selections and upcoming discussion dates.
