Pillars of TEXAAN 

The TEXAAN Executive Board endorses four pillars that champion the initiatives of our organization.

The four “Pillars” of TEXAAN are:

  • Professional Development: TEXAAN shall provide multiple outlets (e.g. professional reading, workshops, conferences, etc.) wherein advisors can increase their capabilities and improve their skills
  • Networking: TEXAAN will provide platforms for advisors to meet other advisors from various institutions through an online profile, annual conference, drive-ins, and much more. 
  • Recognition: TEXAAN seeks to recognize the work and the impact that advising has on student retention and success.  TEXAAN recognizes its advisors through membership highlights which occur quarterly, and through awards given at our annual conference.
  • Dissemination of Information: TEXAAN will serve as a connection to all advising organizations and will provide information about local events, conferences, webinars and more across the state.

These set of guiding principles affirm the professional association’s mission and goals, while at the same time, anticipate the needs of 21st century academic advisors
