The Georgia Tech Academic Advisors Network (GTAAN) defines advising as a developmental process in which we guide students through their educational experience to reach their full potential. In order for this process to be successful, advisors must have access to new information about campus resources and best practices in advising.
We abide by the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (CAS) and The Family Educational Rights and Privacy ACT (FERPA).
GTAAN was created as a means of improving and guiding the delivery of advising services at The Georgia Institute of Technology. A primary goal is to provide academic advisors:
- Professional development
- Peer support
- Resources to enhance student success
- Communication with the larger university community
GTAAN has a facilitator that is a direct link to the Vice Provost of Undergraduate Studies so that we are connected with the campus mission as well as having a channel for information exchange with the administration.
