Title: Orientation and FYE: An Anchor to Welcome New Graduate and Professional Students
Lead Presenter: Kristin Richey
Date: On-Demand
Room: On Demand
Abstract: Historically, our professional school orientation was comprised of dry academic presentations having students sit in a lecture hall for hours on end. In the summer 2019, we adopted a flipped model, where students met in small groups with their assigned lead advisor and spent the time on relationship building. Orientation is now a three-day model, where small groups are primarily used to help students get to know each other and connect to the school.  This presentation will provide an overview of the model, advisor training, assessment, and post-orientation follow-up with students as well as a look at our current 2020 orientation which includes the combination of a Peer Mentoring Committee and Orientation Committee to create our First Year Experience Committee. Participants will walk away with tips  and consider ways to plan to cultivate community in their graduate or professional students through first year orientation and programming.
