Title: Effective Academic Advising Strategies

Date : March 3rd, at 2 PM

Location: C-mast 406


The NACADA Statement of Core Values tells us that “Academic advisors work to strengthen the importance, dignity, potential, and unique nature of each individual within the academic setting.” Again and again, we hear advisors ask, “Exactly how do I go about doing that?  What are some specific strategies I can use?” and “show how the process works.”

This broadcast has been designed with these questions in mind.  If you have ever asked, “What works in academic advising?” you’ll want to join us as our Presentation Panel discusses six strategic approaches to advising that they have found beneficial in their advising practice.

Title: Reaching and Retaining Students: Advising Students on Academic Probation

Date: February 4th at 2:00

Location:  406 CMAST


There is no single type of student or student population or characteristic that makes a student destined for academic probation: no one is exempt from the possibility. What factors put students at risk for academic probation?  Who are the stakeholders and what are their roles in supporting students on academic probation?  What can advisors do?

In this broadcast, our Presentation Panel will discuss these questions and more!  Institutional programs that are supportive of the student on academic probation and useful resources for academic advisors will be shared. The webcast is produced by The National Academic Advising Association – their webcasts are always well produced and certainly worthwhile.  This will be a good professional development opportunity for anyone interested in advising.

Title:   Increase Retention on the First Day by Implementing an Engaging Day 1 Agenda

Description:       Whether a student is in a Transfer, Undeclared Major, General Arts and Science or a career major, building the ‘core curriculum’ before the ‘content curriculum’ is essential to maximizing student motivation. Student motivation is dependent on three factors: creating an individual educational and career vision, developing the relevant success skills (high-performance change), and building relationships with classmates and faculty. These three factors are the real core curriculum.
