2017 – 2018 Advisor Development Series

The CFAES Office of Academic Affairs is kicking off the academic year with an advisor development series.  The purpose of the series is to equip advisors with the tools necessary to provide a successful advising experience for students.

We realize some session topics may be of interest to faculty, staff and TAs that are not advisors. Therefore, we’re opening up these development opportunities to anyone in the college who is interested in attending.

The first session will be:

Advising Basics: An overview of the responsibilities, answers to common inquiries, and resources available to advisors and students within the college and on campus.

  • Wed., August 30
  • 9 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
  • Facilitators: Dr. Steve Neal, Paul Heimberger, and Ben Carignan, CFAES Academic Affairs
  • Where:  Nationwide & Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center, 2201 Fred Taylor Drive, International Room
  • RSVP:  by Friday, August 25 to miller.4325@osu.edu.
  • Parking: After RSVPing, a parking permit will be emailed to you

A continental breakfast will be provided.

Also, please save the date for future sessions during this academic year.  All of the following sessions will be at the Nationwide and Ohio Farm Bureau Center in the International Room. An email invitation will be sent separately for each event.
