KU Advising Network

The KU Advising Network (KUAN) is a communication and professional development body. Membership is open to anyone who advises undergraduate students in any capacity at KU. The network was developed with the idea that advisors serve students better when the advising community works together through strategic information-sharing mechanisms. KUAN is supported by the Office of Undergraduate Studies.
