Academic Advising Funding

The University Grants Committee (UGC) provided funding to outstanding educators to lead Communities of Practice (CoP) in PolyU; hence, all faculties are welcome to join CoP. CoP on Academic Advising provides a platform for a group of people who share the common interest in academic advising to exchange knowledge, skills, experiences and information in advising. People in the community can give and get support mutually, and develop their professions through the CoP-AA activities.

CoP-Academic Advising Funding was opened for application in February 2014. We were delighted to receive a good number of excellent applications for the CoP-Academic Advising Funding. Our funding selection panel has approved eight projects and released the result in April 2014. Successful applicants held activities related to academic advising during April to December 2014.
