Student Advising Outside the Box?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Amid mock kidnappings, marijuana legalization, targeted telephone scams and political crises, how can advisors help students mitigate risk, reassure parents and ride out political skirmishes? Despite the best intensions of institutions to provide comprehensive orientations, workshops and information sessions for incoming students, there is no way to predict how student’s lives will be affected during their studies in Canada. How do these different issues change when advising from secondary to post-secondary situation? Join this interactive workshop to learn how these issues affect your staff and students and see how your institution measures up.
