Advising is an important part of our interaction with students and a significant way in which we teach them.  This roundtable is about becoming the best advisors we can be by learning from one another, talking about our successes and our challenges in this realm.

Participants are asked to bring two examples: one of a very challenging advising scenario and one of a very satisfying advising experience. In each case, participants should be willing to share specific details of their encounters with students. From the range of faculty experiences that we will discuss in this workshop, we hope to begin to craft a template for effective advising as a key element of student success. Novice advisors without specific advising experiences are also welcome to attend to learn from more seasoned colleagues.

Space is limited for this workshop. Sign up for your session of choice at

Refreshments will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there.
