What is AMP

MTSU's professional learning community created and sustained by advisors to foster communication, collaboration,
commitment, comradery, and continued growth for the benefit of students, the university, and Truly YOU. We encourage you to review the differences between Professional Development vs. Training.  

Earning AMP Certification

Each academic year, advisors can earn AMP certification through our designated point system. Points are earned various ways, including attending professional development events, teaching, taking classes, completing special projects, and earning outside certifications. Use the left-side menu to access the official Points Guide and to find upcoming events. To request points, click the respective forms below to be directed to the dynamic form. Please submit any question to

Using AMP Funds

Funding is available to MTSU advisors who received AMP certification the prior academic year.  Please submit all funding requests via email to Dr. Sluder and CC the AMP Committee chair.  Funding preference goes towards professional development travel like conferences, but here are other examples of fund use: webinar registration fee, books pertaining to academic advising and your professional development, and certification programs.  Be creative!  All funding requests must go through Dr. Sluder for final approval.
