Three-part series: Writing a Personal Philosophy of Advising
Presented by Kate Bernas, Associate Director, Wayne State University's Advisor Training Academy.
Writing a statement of advising philosophy is an important professional development experience and is considered one of the essential Relational Competencies in the NACADA Core Competency model. This three-part series will take advisors through the steps to prepare, write, review, and maintain this living document. Attendees for session 1 will have an opportunity to select or be assigned a writing partner to aide in accountability and feedback, with the goal of completing your statement by the end of session 3.
