Article Review: Collaboration Between Athletic and Campus Advisors - Dr. Lisa M. Rubin
Wednesday, March 24 | noon-1 p.m. central
Athletic and academic advisors routinely collaborate as they together foster student success. When interviewed, these individuals have reported potential barriers related to needed technical knowledge, means of communication, geographical accessibility, and unique reporting lines. In this session, Dr. Lisa M. Rubin, Associate Professor at Kansas State University, will briefly share the results of these interviews and answer your questions about ways to foster supportive, trusting relationships with both staff and students given the unique partnership advisors have with athletics. Attendees are invited to read her 2020 article Collaboration Between Athletic and Campus Advisors and come with questions.
Inclusive Advising 101 | Dr. Treya Allen (Arizona State University)
Wednesday, April 14 | noon-1 p.m. central
Inclusive Advising in higher education refers to the ways in which advising practice, accessibility, cultural self-awareness, and personal values of advisors may differ from those that we are serving and may cause blind spots when we are interacting with students, delivering information, providing support, and making judgements about those that we serve- whether conscious or unconsciously. In considering our practices, Inclusive Advising asks of advisors to be intentional in the ways that we engage in our advising practice, treat the advising appointment as a learning space, and to be intentional about accessibility for all students regardless of their cultural, language, degree of ability, religion, nationality, and other identities that may differ from the advisor. It is this difference that strengthens the partnership between advisor and student as they work toward resolutions and creating programming for students.
