Title: You Don't Have to Be an Island: How to Improve Integration of Your Professional Advising Office With the Academic Department
Lead Presenter: Rachel Hill
Date: October 07, 2020    Time: 11:00 am - 11:45 am
Room: Poster
Abstract: Transitioning from a faculty advisor model to a professional advisor model has many outcomes. Following our transition, we were able to contact more students than before and saw improvements in student satisfaction. An unexpected consequence for our office was a feeling of isolation from the Biology Department since our advisors were now supervised by a centralized office. Additionally, we had to be more purposeful in achieving faculty engagement with initiatives. This poster highlights ways that we've worked to advocate for our advisors in the department and engage faculty in meaningful ways. This is ideal for advisors and leaders looking for ways to promote their office and to bring faculty members into advising initiatives.
