The Art of Referring Advisor Training Session

The Art of Referring Training Session

Advisors will be exposed to other campus resources through the monthly, Advisor Beat, newsletter. You will not be practicing how to refer a student; instead these skills are scheduled to be practiced during the Ishare meetings hosted monthly by advisors interested in facilitating.
