Toledo Academic Advising Association


The Mission of TACADA is to be a conduit for the exchange of information related to the delivery of advising and student services at The University of Toledo. This Association will build a network of resources to enhance student success and retention in college. Equally important is the representation and promotion of quality academic advising within the larger University community.

TACADA is an allied organization of NACADA, the Global Community for Academic Advising.

TACADA will work to heighten the awareness of the NACADA Journal’s definition of advising: Academic Advising applies knowledge of the field to empower students and campus and community members to successfully navigate academic interactions related to higher education (Larson, Johnson, Aiken-Wisniewski, Barkemeyer, 2018, p.86).

TACADA will utilize NACADA’s guiding principles of the Pillars of Academic Advising to provide the framework to support academic advising at UToledo:

  • Concept of Academic Advising
  • Core Values of Academic Advising
  • Core Competencies of Academic Advising
  • CAS Standards for Academic Advising
