Title: Exploring the Purpose of Academic Advising Through Lowenstein's Oeuvre: PhD Students Reflect
Lead Presenter: Craig McGill
Date: October 08, 2021    Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Room: 262, DECC
Abstract: As evidenced by an upcoming special issue of the NACADA Review, Lowenstein has been a pivotal figure in academic advising, pressing scholars and practitioners to think more deeply about the purpose of the work. Lowenstein has been chiefly concerned with the importance of articulating a unified theory of academic advising. What are the implications of having a unified theory of advising? What are the potential ramifications (both negative and positive) of having such a theory? Who benefits and who is potentially excluded? These questions will be explored in the context of Lowenstein's work by a panel of doctoral students studying academic advising. We believe there is power in deeply exploring the purpose(s) of academic advising and being able to communicate the value of our work to critical stakeholders.
