Please join the Office of Academic Affairs on Monday, September 16 from 9 – 11 a.m. in Old Main 119 for a Progress Report and Advisement Workshop. This workshop will provide information from the Griff Center, the Core Curriculum Committee, the Honors Program and associate deans as we head into the fall advisement period. Topics will include using iAdvise effectively, Griff Audits, advising for the core and honors, as well as anything else participants might find useful for a broad level overview for anyone doing advisement for any major.
It is our hope that we will have faculty at different levels so longer term faculty can share pro-tips with their more junior colleagues.
