The IowaAAN aims to foster personal and professional growth of its members by establishing opportunities for participation and discussion, debate, and the exchange of ideas concerning academic advising within the state of Iowa and related areas of higher education.
We are pleased to be hosting our 10th annual Drive-In Conference on Tuesday, April 2, 2019 at the FFA Enrichment Center on the DMACC-Ankeny campus. This year’s conference will feature a keynote presentation titled “Facilitating Student Engagement: Some Strategies That Work and a Few That Don’t” provided by Dr. John Schuh.
