Title: Advising Transformation of a Private University in Saudi Arabia
Lead Presenter: Georgios Kormpas
Date: October 07, 2021    Time: 8:00 am - 9:00 am
Room: Exhibit Hall A
Abstract: Advising is an important element of every institution in many aspects. Advisors have many hats to wear and are not only operational staff that approves or not extra academic courses. In the specific institution, advising was left to be on autopilot and with no real support, it provided no support. Archaic systemic requirements that were coming from the culture of Saudi Arabia, mandated that only male students had a male advisor and equally females a female one. This created a lot of problems in the allocation of resources. With the creation of an advisory committee that was tasked to look into advising, it became a challenging task to tackle. Through continuous support and communications, all parties reached an agreement and have now started Advising into a new era. Advising became an interdisciplinary responsibility amongst various entities of the University. DARSA (Department of Registration and Student Affairs), the Colleges and the TLDC (Teaching Learning and Development Center).
