Engagement - Let's Do It!

 To meet the challenge of engagement presented to NACADA members by President David Spight, the Board of Directors developed a free Summer Webinar Series revolving around four avenues that focus on engagement in NACADA and the advising profession.

The first webinar in the series focused on what should be included in a “core values” document for advising professionals. The panelists shared information from discussions at the Region Conferences and asked for input on this collection of ideas. The goal was to provide another avenue for listening to NACADA members. What do you feel are the most important values that guide our practice?
*The Core Values Review Committee defines “core values” as beliefs that influence how we act.

There are multiple opportunities to be involved with academic advising research. Participants heard from the inaugural director of the Center for Excellence and Research in Academic Advising and Student Success and other leaders involved with academic advising research.

The final webinar in the Summer Series focused on how members can get involved in NACADA. Leaders representing the three NACADA Divisions were on hand to discuss how they became involved and answer questions about the work of the divisions they represent. This was a prime opportunity to ask questions and receive feedback from those who have gone before!
