“It is critical to provide academic advisors with the understanding, knowledge, and skills that can allow them to be more effective in their work to support student learning, engagement and persistence.”
~ Dr. Wesley Habley
Webinar Presenter
While it is true that information is power, George Klemp suggests that formal knowledge is generally unrelated to superior leadership. And Bennis and Nanus believe that successful leaders empower others to translate intention into sustained action. This session will focus on the process of change and the roles that individuals play in leading change in academic advising on campus.

The presenter will deconstruct the complex process of change by sharing insights on the tasks to be accomplished, the structure in which those tasks are accomplished, the people who are involved in the process, and the strategies used to accomplish the tasks. The presenter will also discuss the personal characteristics needed for individuals, regardless of their campus role, to play a leadership role in bringing about change.

  1. understand why there is resistance to change on the college campus
  2. develop an appreciation for the roles played by critical components of the change process: tasks, people, structure, and strategy
  3. be able to integrate the critical components of the change process in analyzing their campus environment
  4. recognize that, regardless of position or status on campus, they can play a significant role in enhancing the academic advising program
Who should attend?
Key administrators in academic affairs and student affairs, enrollment management personnel, advising directors/coordinators, members of campus task force responsible for enhancements in academic advising
