Pizza for Your Thoughts - April 10 and 11
Please join us for pizza and a discussion about Academic Advising and Career Guidance at CSUSM. We are a work group that has been charged by Provost Oberem and VP Checa to examine the current practices and structures related to academic advising and career guidance across campus to evaluate the impact, efficiency, and effectiveness, and to identify opportunities to improve and enhance those services to meet the needs of our campus both now and into the future. Your student voice is important to help shape the future for our campus!
During the student open forums, we’ll focus on discussions related to the following questions:
- What is working well in academic advising and what is working well in career guidance at CSUSM?
- What is not working well in academic advising and what is not working well in career guidance at CSUSM? What improvements would you recommend?
- You have a magic wand...What does ideal academic advising look like at CSUSM?
- You have a magic wand...What does ideal career guidance look like at CSUSM?
We will be hosting two student open forums on Tuesday April 10 from 12-1 p.m. in UH 101 and Wednesday April 11 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in UH 101.
We define academic advising and career guidance as…
Academic Advising: Interactive process in which the adviser helps the student set and achieve academic goals, acquire relevant information and services, and make responsible decisions consistent with interests, goals, abilities, and degree requirements. Decisions concerning careers and/or graduate study may be part of the advising process. Advising should be personalized to consider the special needs of each student, which may include appropriate referral services.
Career Guidance: Interactive process in which the career counselor assists students and alumni in developing, evaluating and implementing career, education, employment, and entrepreneurial decisions and plans within the context of advancing the mission of the University as well as supporting academic and experiential learning programs to promote student learning and student development.
You are also welcome to provide your input for the above questions at https://csusm.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_4IKRVRiGqm28umV Please do so no later than April 27, 2018. We look forward to meeting with you.
