Terrence McDonald Academic Advising Academy

The Advising Academy fosters excellence in advising programs within all departments in the College by providing a solid practical and theoretical approach to advising in LSA.  The Academy also offers a wonderful opportunity to share best practices.  One of our primary goals is to enjoin all departments in a discussion of how we might build stronger intellectual communities within our respective areas.

The Advising Academy is named in honor of former Dean Terrence McDonald, who has been an extraordinary friend to and leader for advisors on this campus.

The 2019-2020 Terrence J. McDonald LSA Academic Advising Academy will be held on Thursday, October 24th in the Great Lakes Central and North Room of the Palmer Commons. Funded by the generous support of former LSA Dean Terrence J. McDonald, the annual Advising Academy serves as a basis for exploring and advancing advising practice across the college’s academic disciplines and departments.

This year’s Academy will focus on putting various advising theories into practice during advising conversations with students. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss various advising theories and will leave with a better understanding of various advising theories, as well as viable practices they might use to apply or adapt these theories to their own work with students.
