    • Summary

      Is your office considering integrating advising and career development? Does your office serve as a one-stop shop? Many universities are considering integrating academic advising and career services under the same umbrella, while others require staff cross training: academic advisors, enrollment counselors, and career coaches.

      Join Wendy Flint and Sidney Tafflinger, George Fox University, to explore practical strategies to increase engagement, retention and positively impact institutional outcomes. Examine integration process and considerations, strategies to customize your current model, and assess impact to student populations.

      Following this program, you will be able to:

      • Evaluate the structure of a one-stop career and academic planning center;
      • Use “holistic" coaching conversations to increase retention and mitigate resistance; and
      • Make the case for integrating services.
