  • See Judge - ActBeing a reflective practitioner

  • Pastoral Care

    In what ways can I remind myself that each student I receive is coming from a particular place with a particular story and particular needs?

    Am I able to see the student as a whole person, as opposed to a number, or worse, as a problem?

  • Hospitality

    What does my advising space look like?

    Is it welcoming to students?

    Are they made to feel at home in my office space?

  • Vocations

    Do I take the time to listen to students career plans?

    Do I have the resources to refer them to the right place when they articulate their future plans?

  • Service & Justice or Community Involvement

    Am I aware of community activities and events that students may benefit from?

    Am I aware of volunteering opportunities on my campus or in the wider community?

    Am I aware of community service opportunities that exist for students as they graduate?

  • Lectures / Workshops / Retreats

    Am I aware of lectures, film screenings and workshops that are coming up that might benefit students?

  • Catechesis

    Do I think of advising as a teaching and learning process?

    Am I open to teachable moments that arise in advising sessions?

    Do I create them?"In every casual conversation, with every student, there may be a chance to throw in an illuminating word, to sow an inspirational thought."

    - Fr. Henry Carr, C.S.B. STM President, 1942-1949

  • Leadership Development

    In what ways can the students that I receive lend their gifts and talents to take on leadership roles in your context?

    Am I aware of all the leadership opportunities that exist for the students I advise?

  • Campus Presence

    Is the only place students have the opportunity to see me in my advising space?

    Are there events or activities on campus in which I can participate that will help me better understand students perspectives?

    Nothing breaks down barriers like a Bon Jovi song

  • Ecumenical & Multifaith Involvement

    In what ways can I remind myself that not only is each student I receive is coming from a particular place with a particular story, but that story may also include a unique religious or cultural perspective?

    Working with other departments and units can be a bit like working ecumenically.

    You need to recognize your own bias/perspective and be open to other ways of thinking in order to foster dialogue

  • Concluding DiscussionThank you for your participation.
