Title: Academic Advising Administration and Leadership Seminar
Lead Presenter: Mark Taylor
Date: October 23, 2022    Time: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Room: A106, OCC
Abstract: This seminar provides an overview of the issues, responsibilities, and challenges encountered by advising administrators throughout higher education. New and experienced administrators will benefit from presentations on a range of topics relevant to their work, while further exploring those topics in discussion groups. Participants are encouraged to bring their questions, share best practices, and network with fellow advising administrators. This interactive workshop also will provide a forum for participants to share a current issue or challenge they are facing, receive feedback from colleagues, and develop an initial plan in response as they prepare to return to campus.

The presenters will address those expectations inherent in staff supervision, including hiring, training, and performance evaluations, as well as those associated with program management such as assessment and budget planning. The seminar will consider professional, faculty, and hybrid advising models and the implications of each for administrators. Student-advisor ratios, technology, growing advisor responsibilities, unique student populations, and other considerations affecting the delivery of advising services will be examined, along with multiple and nuanced methods of delivery.

Participants also will receive advice and learn strategies for promoting the value of academic advising; connecting advising with the academic mission and meaningful institutional objectives such as retention, timely graduation, and student success; collaborating with campus partners in the context of inevitable politics and evolving priorities; positioning their advisors for success through empowerment, professional development, and career ladders; and strengthening their own leadership.
