Academic Advising Panel
- Create opportunities for more effective referrals on both ends. Students can feel “ping ponged” between on campus resources and staff (and vice versa). When a genuine relationship and familiarity exists (for example referring a student to a specific advisor by name, or advisors knowing what faculty are particularly strict on prerequisites, etc..) the student is more likely to have a successful connection/experience.
- To eventually create a clear understanding of the multitude of resources available in advising, tools and workshops available for classroom use (for example “Getting Unstuck with the Final Academic Statement,” or “Starting the Graduate School Hunt”).
- To eventually understand what trainings, if any, would be useful for faculty when they are called to act in an advising role (for example how to work with the student who feels completely lost on their path).
In this and future meetings there will be time to share more goals of how to connect the resources of advising more directly to your classroom, so please bring ideas if you have them.
