P1: Implementing the Core Competencies Across Advisor Training and Development

2-4 p.m. | Cost: $40
CJ Venable | University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Since the publication of the original Academic Advising Core Competencies Guide in 2017 (Farr & Cunningham, 2017), institutions have tried to find innovative and useful ways of implementing the competencies without significant guidance. As a new edition of the Core Competencies Guide is released, the time is ripe for new efforts to make the core competencies the foundation for advising practice across the profession. This preconference workshop will offer specific resources from the presenter's institution and interactive opportunities to reflect on core competencies implementation. Attendees will spend time mapping their existing resources to the competencies to identify gaps and strategize how the competencies might be used in assessing advisor development. Expect to leave with resources and a plan for continuing to implement the competencies at one's institution.

P2: Success Really is for Everyone, Advisors Too!

2-4 p.m. | Cost: $40
Whitney Harris | Drake University
Amy Korthank | The University of Iowa

Has your institution taken a harder look at how diversity, inclusion, and belonging impact student success?  On the heels of a global pandemic and social/racial unrest, institutions have higher expectations of their academic advising communities to provide culturally responsive student support services.

Join us for an engaging pre-conference workshop where members of the advising community will have the opportunity to name their identities, examine associated privilege/power dynamics, and explore how they “show up” for student success.  Through self-reflection and critical thinking exercises, advisors can begin or continue their journey of “rethinking how we authentically include and engage students, foster social connections, and build community.”
