Title: The Longer Advising Appointment Project
Lead Presenter: Diana Dingman
Date: October 07, 2021    Time: 8:00 am - 9:00 am
Room: Exhibit Hall A
Abstract: In response to student demand for a more holistic advising experience, academic advisors experimented with variable appointment lengths, beyond the traditional 30-minute meetings. The project began with targeted outreach to selected student populations at different times within the semester, intending to deliver a higher quality advising experience beyond the transactional. Focused on building stronger student-advisor relationships, the variable time allotments created a space for discussion of interests, goals, and academic plans, in addition to negotiating any remaining student concerns and anxieties.
This session intends to share the impact of these longer appointments, along with the resulting experiences for advisors and students alike. Attendees will be encouraged to discuss creative ways of adapting the variable appointment length model to suit their unique advising situations.
