Humanities Advising Workshop

On Tuesday, March 17 at 3:30 p.m., please join your colleagues, Dan Kilbride, Peter Kvidera, John McBratney, Dianna Taylor, and Martha Pereszlenyi-Pinter over some light refreshments for a lively conversation about advising for the liberal arts.

Advising should be more than helping students pick courses to satisfy college requirements (more than “alphabet soup”). Ideally, an advisor helps a student think more largely about their future life and career. What awaits them upon graduation? Addressing this topic is particularly vexed for students who are not enrolled in a pre-professional major. What are the practical benefits of a liberal arts degree? This workshop will help equip faculty, particularly faculty in the Humanities, to address these topics in advising conversations.

Please RSVP to Natalie Robinson,, by March 10 if you can join us. This workshop is open to all faculty, but we will particularly target advising for the Humanities this time.
