Advising Curriculum Program Series Begins Oct. 4

The Undergraduate Team of the Academic Advising Center launches this year’s program for faculty advisors on Friday, Oct. 4 at 2 p.m. in the East Academic Building Room 133 and via WebEx. This year’s series recognizes that students learn about advising in a developmental way.

This first session, “What Students Should Learn from Advisors in Their First Year,” will give faculty advisors tools to meet students’ needs as they come for their first advising appointment. It will help students meet expectations about using tools like the Undergraduate Catalog, Degree Audits, Degree Plans, and the Student Success Portal.

The rest of the series will help advisors assist students as they reach different points in their programs and their needs shift.  On Dec. 13, the program will be “How Students Can Take the Next Steps in Advising”.

The Feb. 21 program will address “How Students Can Get the Most From Advising as They Approach Graduation.”

The program grows out of New Faculty Orientation but will be useful for beginning advisors as well as veterans.  It is excellent preparation for participation in the Summer Advising Team.
