The Art of Advising
Reframing the Issues, Promoting Faculty Success
Conventional wisdom says faculty often have an aversion to the very idea of doing academic advising.
Turns out conventional wisdom is wrong.
In a special two-part video program, leading experts on faculty advising programs will demonstrate that the realimpediment is a lack of information, training and support – and they’ll show you how to increase faculty participation by providing them.
The Art of Advising is led by Mitchell Levy, Ph.D. (Executive Director – Center for Counseling, Advising & Academic Support) and Bernard Polnariev, Ph.D. (Executive Associate to the Dean of Academic Affairs) of LaGuardia Community College with 18,000 matriculated students on the campus.
Together, they’ll show you how they reframed the issue of perceived faculty resistance to advising, how they implemented a student-centered approach while partnering with faculty members, and how you can create your own series of successful advising programs based on theirs.
Their work was recognized by a National Award as they won the ‘NASPA 2011 Student Affairs Partnering with Academic Affairs (SAPAA) Promising Practices’ award.
