Fulfilling the Potential of Faculty Advising

 

At most institutions, faculty are expected to advise as part of their contractual obligation. Few if any, however, have been hired, much less been awarded tenure or promoted, because of their skill as advisors. And even at institutions which emphasize teaching and mentoring undergraduates, expectations for faculty, especially in conducting research and finding external support, have increased. Whether you're a faculty member, a professional advisor who works with faculty, or an advising administrator, this Webinar will give you practical ideas about enhancing and supporting the important work of advising done by faculty.
