Title: Moral Neutrality in Advising: Supporting High Achievers and Struggling Students Alike
Lead Presenter: Kalli Drake
Date: October 07, 2021    Time: 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Room: 207/208, DECC
Abstract: Experiencing decision-making paralysis and hyperfixation on performance outcomes such as grades are two major struggles college students present in advising. Students are taught they should seek to make "good" decisions and avoid "bad" ones. What if they knew many academic decisions are actually morally neutral? What if they knew their struggles and successes academically are not indicative of their character? This presentation introduces the concept of moral neutrality to advisors and demonstrates how it can be used to help students overcome challenges and achieve a more well-rounded life balance. In this session, advisors will learn to recognize morally neutral scenarios, to help students identify benefits that serve them in decision-making situations, and to advocate for students from this perspective to other faculty and staff.
