This portion of the training session will be an overview/review.
I will introduce myself to the participants and make certain they understand
why they are here and that this training session is regarding academic
advisement. I will then ask them if any of them have any experience
in academic advising at the college level. For those who have I will
stress to them that the purpose of this session is not to reinvent the
wheel, but to highlight what is unique to USC Aiken regarding academic
advisemengt. I will ask each participant to give her/his definition
of academic advising. I will then convey to them the definition of
academic advising as expressed by the National Association of Academic
Advising (NACADA). I will also present to them the mission statement
and academic advising standards and guidelines as determined by NACADA.
At the end of this portion of the session I will briefly highlight the
goals and objectives of the entire session.
