Title: Orientation as a Port for Possibility: Learning From the Liberal Arts
Lead Presenter: Ashley Glenn
Date: On-Demand
Room: On Demand
Abstract: It takes a bold student to say, "I'm majoring in the liberal arts," especially as this academic destination is cast as the place where career aspirations go to die. Recognizing how this impacts the confidence of incoming students, we re-evaluated our purpose in new student orientation, especially as we shifted to online in the midst of the COVID pandemic. Our role became two-fold: celebrating a student's decision and instilling a sense of possibility. In this session, you will experience, as a student, our online collaborative approach to orientation advising that takes you beyond requirements-focused conversations to interactive relationship-focused experiences. Together we will learn from a liberal arts lens how to affirm student identity and define educational purpose as more than a major.
