Advisor Mastery Program (AMP) - Professional Development


Amp Logo

What is AMP

AMP stands for Advisor Mastery Program, which is MTSU's professional learning community created and sustained by advisors. The charge of this volunteer-based committee is to foster communication, collaboration, commitment, comradery, and continued growth for the benefit of students, the university, and Truly YOU. Because our focus is not in role training, we encourage you to review the differences between Professional Development and Training.  Advisors who elect to participate will earn points towards an annual certification, as well as other small prizes along the way. Certified advisors are eligible to use Student Success funding towards professional development. 

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, presenting at conferences, teaching, taking classes, completing special projects, and earning outside certifications. Use the left-side menu to access the official points guide and a calendar of upcoming sponsored events. To request points, click the appropriate link below to be directed to the dynamic form. Feel free to submit any questions to AMP@mtsu.eduThe AMP committee meets monthly to review any point submissions.
