[All content is self-contained within the eTutorial. No additional materials are required.]
This eTutorial introduces a variety of readings and case studies about FGCS that participants will use to compare and contrast their personal practice with and how their institution delivers advising services to them. The eTutorial aims to help participants become better aware of the issues and challenges this special population of students faces attending higher education. By becoming more aware of FGCS characteristics, participants will identify how they can improve their personal advising practices and assist their institutions in improving programmatic advising design and delivery.
