Advisor Recognition Training – Elective Sessions

Presenters: Megan Delph and Coretta Walker – The University of North Carolina at Greensboro


ART Elective: Motivation

Abstract: Ever heard that motivation is a P.R.O.C.E.S.S.? For advisers we have a responsibility to serve as a resource for our students but also keep them motivated. And motivation is more than just recognition for a job well done. Every person is motivated by different outcomes. Additionally, the opportunities, challenges, purpose and expectations we provide are all components of motivation. Come learn more about keeping your group energized and invested. Strategies, techniques, and opportunities will be discussed and participants can share methods they have implemented on their campus. Motivate someone today!


ART Elective: Legal Issues

Abstract: In the Legal Issues program, participants are introduced to some legal terms, sources of law, and issues that are most likely to affect them in their day-to-day work as organization advisers.

This course does not give legal advice!  The purpose of this course is to create an awareness of legal concerns and how to  begin being aware of, and preparing for, possible legal issues.  Some topics discussed include conference travel, copyright (shirts, etc), and protection/coverage by having the job description accurately reflect what you do as an adviser.


ART Elective: Diversity

Abstract: Course content includes a values assessment, defining diversity individually and holistically, and articulating why diversity is important.  Additional resources include breaking down the word diversity, discussing diversity as it relates to your institution, and looking at diversity through the leadership lens. Participants will also discuss ways to diversify student leadership, how communication affects diversity, and the role of the adviser.
