Advising and the New Core Curriculum
Tuesday, March 14, 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., CAS Dean’s Conference Room:

With priority registration soon to arrive, we want to equip advisers with the latest information on the New Core Curriculum. What do your students need to take? Where might course availability be more limited? What new rules or processes have been established? Join Catherine Sherman, Laura Atkins, and Peter Kvidera for an overview of where we stand.

Advising and Supporting STEM Students, Part 1: Helping Students Cope with STEM
Wednesday, April 19, noon-1 p.m., Dolan A202/3

How do we ensure students intending STEM understand what is required in STEM careers? How do we determine which STEM course a student should take in their first semester? How can we support students with weak preparation in STEM? When is it appropriate to advise a student to consider a change of major? Join Rebecca Drenovsky, Jeffrey Dyck, and Carlo DeMarchi as they discuss strategies for assisting our STEM students.

Advising and Supporting STEM Students, Part 2: Meeting the Needs of High-Achieving STEM Students
Wednesday, April 26, noon-1 p.m., Dolan A202/3
What are the challenges of advising and retaining high-achieving STEM students? How can you help them navigate the Honors program? How can we make research experience available to more first year and sophomore students? What benefit does research experience deliver? Join Angie Jones, James Watling, and Carlo DeMarchi as they discuss meeting the needs of this particular STEM student population.
