Title: Creating a Culture of Inclusivity, Belongingness, and Engagement in Academic Advising Towards Student Success
Lead Presenter: Locksley Knibbs
Date: October 05, 2020    Time: 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Room: Preconference Workshop
Abstract: As students diversify across nationalities, races, religions, and genders, empathy and engagement with students who are different from us are ever more critical to advising because we interact with students from various backgrounds. It is, therefore, crucial for us to practice the concepts of diversity, inclusivity, and engagement and their meanings to our profession within the context of higher education. This pre-conference workshop aims to discuss and apply the tenets of diversity, inclusion, and engagement to the academic advising relationship in an effort towards student success. Attendees will learn about cultural sensitivity, inclusive practices and what it means to be engaged as it relates to the diversity of advising professionals. This is a highly participatory workshop with attendees participating in interactive sessions with peers to share ideas on how to build a culturally aware advising unit within their advising roles and discuss retention plans. Participants will learn strategies on how to create a culture of inclusivity, belongingness, and engagement in academic advising towards student success.
