The University of Wisconsin System Task Force on Academic and Career Advising is comprised of representatives from each UW campus and includes senior administrators, faculty, professional advisors, and students. The Task Force was appointed in February 2003 by Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, Cora B. Marrett. Its charge is to "develop and coordinate efforts to assist institutions in reviewing, enhancing and assessing their academic and career advising programs. This might include, among other initiatives, examining advising models and practices in other states, developing systemwide workshops, seeking external funding support, and creating a systemwide advising website."

The Task Force is currently focusing its work on three issues: assessment of advising, career development, and training and preparation of advisors.
