Two Workshops for Faculty Mentors (Advisors) October 3 and 5

submitted by

Informed mentoring/advising of our students can be critical to their success, on-time graduation, and achieving their academic goals. The Degree Audit we’ve been using since 2021 is designed to help students and their faculty mentors better and more effectively communicate with each other about university and discipline-based requirements specific to each student as well as documentation of the student’s progression toward graduation.

In response to faculty requests, the Registrar’s Office Graduation Team is pleased to offer two sessions to help faculty learn more about the Degree Audit and how to use it as a tool for mentoring/advising students. Faculty may attend one or both workshops, and should RSVP planned attendance to one or both by sending an email to no later than 2pm the day of the session.
