NACADA: Building Partnerships with Diverse Student Populations
11/15/2013 9:30AM - 12:00PM
The retention and graduation of minority students has become a priority on many college and university campuses across the country. This workshop will help broaden and clarify terminology/language, identify group characteristics, provide ways in which advisors can enhance their effectiveness with this population, and discuss student responsibilities in this process. Two key points in this process are student’s self-authorship and moving them from the periphery to the center of campus life. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to utilize case studies, share their personal experiences, and work in small groups to identify key characteristics and advising techniques for minority students. In addition, participants will identify where they are in terms of their cultural awareness and develop strategies to move from awareness to competency.
