While many participants in the Summer Institute are individuals representing their institutions, in the past few years, we have seen an increase in the number of institutional teams attending to work on a common ACTION PLAN . Your team could include a combination of administrators, advisors, faculty and others who have an integral part in the success of advising programs and missions at your institution. Teams have varied in size from 2 to 12 at past institutes.
In addition to the regularly scheduled sessions of the institute, we also provide breakout space for your team meetings with the opportunity to meet with SI faculty, as well as group consultation sessions. Take advantage of the opportunity to be away from the daily cares of your campus to focus on the 'big picture' of advising while developing a specific ACTION PLAN for the improvement of student success.
As noted above, Institutions are encouraged to send teams in order to achieve the highest possible results for their campus. Teams will be provided opportunities to meet together with Institute facilitators for individualized focus on their plan of action. Informal discussions led by experienced professionals will provide guidance on specific issues relative to your situation.
