Event Description

Applying the Concept of Appreciative Admissions to Models of Academic Advising.

Regardless of what office handles admissions, the process has shifted in recent years. Various models, and structures, exist in the way schools advice new-to-college students. Regardless of who is doing the talking at intake, certain questions and methods should be utilized to ensure that students feel they made the right choice, not to mention their parent(s).

While FTEs (bodies in seats) are still viewed as an indicator in some places, more and more emphasis is being placed on how well those bodies do in college, i.e. succeed. Admissions and Advising are normally the first line of communication with prospective students, so it’s important for these areas to know where the best chances of success lie, and that appears to be with appreciative admissions.

This webinar, by expert speaker Kent Seaver, an expert in the field of student assessment, will discuss the real meaning of Appreciative Admission. By applying Dr. Jennifer Bloom’s concepts of Appreciative Admission to accepted models of Academic Advising, you will gain an understanding of what needs to be addressed at the intake process. You’ll also learn how repeated exposure to advising resources can enable the student to be successful in every aspect of their higher educational career.
