Title: Inclusive and Welcoming Advisors: Analyzing the Advising Experiences of Marginalized Students
Lead Presenter: Kerri Wakefield
Date: October 07, 2021    Time: 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Room: Zoom Room 4
Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic and anti-Black racism movement led us to wonder how different student populations experience academic advising differently. Our research team, composed of advising administrators and educational researchers, surveyed undergraduate students about their advising experiences at a large, public, research institution. We asked questions such as whether their advisors respect their identities and use inclusive language, how virtual advising compares to in-person advising, and how advisors help them navigate challenges. Then we analyzed how the advising experiences of students in marginalized groups differed from those of their peers. In this session, we will share lessons learned from our research and engage participants in an interactive activity to identify strategies for supporting marginalized students on their own campuses.
