ABOUT THE VIRTUAL ADVISING PROJECT
The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board developed the Virtual Advising Project – including a chatbot named ADVi, powered by Mainstay – to reach students with critical college access information via text message. Our team of trained advisors back up the chatbot and provide extra support for any student who needs it. Learn more about the project.
