The sessions begin with the role of advising in supporting student success and the foundations of the advising program at Wilkes. Following is a discussion of the types of outcomes that constitute a successful advising experience and the approaches that contribute most to exceptional advising.

The afternoon sessions will be devoted to considering how it is that we know we are effective advisors. A more detailed agenda will be sent to all participants.
