2021-2022 Virtual Adviser Assembly

Our 2021-2022 Adviser Assembly was virtual this year and—even so—it was personal, impactful, and chock-full of great new ways to connect. More than 1,000 College Advising Corps advisers, university program partners, alumni, and donors joined together with a shared goal of connecting, engaging, and promoting access and equity. The three-day assembly featured compelling and inspiring keynote sessions, riveting discussions, informative adviser-led sessions, and professional development-focused panel discussions. Check out our video to experience the highlights:


“We are inspired by the work you do in your role as advisers to promote access and equity, student by student, day in and day out. We hope access will always be a part of your life philosophy.”

– Gregory Nicholson, Chief Program Officer
