Advisement & Retention Services

Advising Exchange

Tech's Advising Exchange is a body of academic advisors who are dedicated to the development, promotion, and scholarship of academic advising on Tennessee Tech’s campus. Faculty and professional advisors alike are welcome to attend any of these monthly forums. The schedule will alternate mornings and afternoons to accommodate as many schedules as possible.

Tech’s Advising Exchange is coordinated by a Steering Committee comprised of current academic advisors on campus. The Steering Committee includes the Director of Advisement & Retention Services and three volunteer positions. One of the three volunteer positions will rotate off each semester to ensure that we have active involvement by each member, a chance for newly hired individuals to get involved, and bring new life to the committee.

Come check us out and improve your advising practice. If you would like to suggest a topic, please email Simone McKelvey -
