Honors Advising Institute

June 5-7, 2019 :: Disney's Coronado Springs Resort :: Orlando, Florida

The NCHC Program Review Instrument states that honors students should receive honors-related academic advising from qualified faculty and/or staff. In this intensive workshop, we will discuss key theoretical foundations of advising and how to implement those frameworks in the context of advising honors students. This institute is ideal for academic advisors who are newer to honors and/or honors staff who are newer to advising.

The institute will be comprised of three primary blocks:

    • Advising theory: Frameworks / concepts
    • Student interaction: Practical approaches to working with high-achieving students and students with holistic needs
    • Advisor needs: Professional development

New this year will be a track for experienced honors advisors and honors advising administrators. Special breakouts for this audience will include:

    • Managing from the middle / capacity building
    • Communicating the value of honors advising to stakeholders
    • The role of advising in honors student persistence and success
