Cross-College Advising Service (CCAS) is seeking a student-centered, caring individual to join our team. CCAS is a team-oriented workplace that uses the energy, strengths, and interests of its advisors to help undecided/exploring students discover their academic and career pathways. CCAS serves a diverse population of students. As such, CCAS encourages applications from members of underrepresented communities and from candidates who foster and promote the values of diversity and inclusion.
The Cross-College Advising Service (CCAS) is a university-wide academic advising service for students who are undecided about their major and career plans. Although the office focuses primarily on freshmen and sophomores, advising is also offered to students who are in transition from one college to another within UW-Madison.
CCAS reports to the central Office of Undergraduate Advising (OUA), which was created in 2011 to coordinate and improve advising for undergraduate students. OUA has four reporting units that provide direct undergraduate advising: the Cross-College Advising Service, serving undecided and exploring students, the Center for Pre-Health Advising, the Center for Pre-Law Advising, and the Undergraduate Academic Awards office. The Office of Undergraduate Advising reports to the Provost through the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning.
The CCAS advising staff, knowledgeable about all majors on campus, is available to guide students in charting initial academic paths and to help them connect with appropriate advising resources. In addition to providing individual advising, CCAS works collaboratively with schools and colleges to provide an array of academic advising services. CCAS has residence hall advising offices in Chadbourne, Dejope, Ogg, Sellery, and Witte, as well as the main office in Ingraham Hall. CCAS also includes a Career Exploration Center (CEC), where students have opportunities to use a wide variety of tools to explore major and career options.
CCAS is a team-oriented workplace that uses the energy, strengths, and interests of its advisors to accomplish office needs, including supervision and training of student advisors, implementation and planning of SOAR, communication strategies and vision, professional development planning, assessment of office and student need, orientation for incoming students to CCAS, among others. CCAS serves a diverse population of students. As such, CCAS encourages applications from members of underrepresented communities and from candidates who foster and promote the values of diversity and inclusion.
