Title: We Share Many Hats: Systems Theory for Advising Program Evaluation and Development
Lead Presenter: Amanda Ritter
Date: October 08, 2021    Time: 3:15 pm - 4:15 pm
Room: 236, DECC
Abstract: For advising professionals, it is no longer 'we wear many hats' but instead 'we share many hats.' This fundamental shift in how we perceive our responsibilities is a necessary one. Higher education continues to experience rapid change. With this change, professionals in higher education settings are often called on to act independently of one another when addressing complex problems. These demands can cause us to lose sight of interrelated efforts across campus. This presentation introduces systems thinking as a framework for more effective, collaborative, and dynamic program development. After our session, attendees will be able to apply systems thinking to develop pragmatic programming that embraces the complexity of modern higher education institutions, helps strengthen their communities, and increase the quality of their services.
