West Region

July 25, 2016

Dear advising colleagues,

Welcome to the new West Region website!

Included in the governing documents for TEXAAN is the aim to provide, “professional development, networking,
recognition, and dissemination of information.” But if you haven’t heard, Texas is kind of a big place! The regional
structure exists, in part, to better facilitate these important efforts.
And that’s what this page is being created for: to connect advising professionals in the West Region as we develop,
recognize, and share.

In the coming months, you will find updates here including (but not necessarily limited to):

  •  a West Region Newsletter
  •  Spotlights (member, institution, program, etc.)
  •  Shared Readings and Discussions
  •  Interviews with advising and higher education professionals
  •  Upcoming Events

As your Regional Representative, I intend to serve you and your needs to the very best of my ability, but I will always
need your help. If you’ve got a spotlight you’d like to shine somewhere, drop me a line! If you know of an article or
publication advisors just absolutely need to read, send it my way! Is there an upcoming event in the region? Please

You get the picture. 😉

This space will only be as good as y’all make it, so let’s make it great together! If you’re advising way out west with us,
join in the fun and let me know what you’d like to see us doing.

All the best,
