Faculty/Staff Resources

Faculty talking to a student

Academic advisors want to provide accurate and timely information to the students they assist. The Advisor's Handbook is designed to provide information to new advisors and to serve as a resource for more experienced advisors.

Advisor Handbook

Once classes begin, faculty have the option of submitting an Early Warning Referral to the Advising Center, identifying any student who might be experiencing academic difficulty. These students are then notified by letter and phone and offered assistance that might help them complete their classes successfully. Faculty have found this process to be very helpful and supportive to students.

Faculty may submit Early Warning Referrals by using the Early Warning Referral or contacting the Academic & Career Services at  865-8501 or email McConkeyam@unk.edu.

Early Warning Referral Statistics

Academic and Career Services is dedicated to preparing UNK students for life after college and collaborating with faculty and staff plays a vital part in achieving this goal. As you make plans for Fall semester, please take some time to consider how our services could benefit your students. Thank you for considering our services.
