Title: Bridging Gaps: Connecting Strategy, Structure, and Culture to Achieve Advising Success
Lead Presenter: Jeffrey McClellan
Date: October 23, 2022    Time: 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Room: G131, OCC
Abstract: Once an organization has developed a significant and purposeful strategy to guide its educational efforts, the next step is to design a structure that will help it to do so. For universities and colleges, this means aligning the advising model of the institution with the role played by the advising system within the institutional strategy and culture. In this workshop, participants will examine how to bridge the gap between their own institutional strategies for advising and their advising model for delivering on that strategy. Participants will begin by exploring the strategic alignment between advising and the educational mission at their institution. They will then examine strengths and weaknesses of their current advising model, including the organizational roles (faculty, advisors, coaches, peer mentors, etc.) that contribute to that mission and how these roles work together as part of the model. Alternate advising models will then be explored and examined to determine the model that best aligns with the strategy, and culture and of the institution. Role alignment and coordination will be analyzed along with issues related to caseloads, such as advisee populations and needs. As participants explore and rethink their own institutional models, the presenters will share their insights, successes, and challenges associated with engaging with this process at their own and other institutions. as well as those gleaned from other institutions they have worked with using similar processes.
