Learn about developmental advising and explore how it can help engage and retain all types of students at research-intensive (R1) universities. Given that learning is a social process, relationships—especially those with faculty—are powerful tools that aid in students’ personal and professional development (Baker & Griffin, 2010). 

Participants in this workshop will explore a research-based Guiding Framework for advisor training focused on the following components:
  1. Conceptual: Understanding the context within which advisors work;
  2. Informational: Knowledge that advisors need to do their work;
  3. Relational: Competencies to establish appropriate and effective connections with students;
  4. Technological: Ability to effectively use advising technology and tools; and
  5. Personal: Advisor self-awareness and professional growth.
