Appreciative Advising 101
Office Space Self-Check
If you were a student would you want to be in your office?
NACADA Research States...
“The physical location and décor of advising space send a message about the institutional role and mission of academic advising to students and parents before they ever meet with an advisor” (Folsom, 2011).

NACADA Research States...
Positive spaces encourages
- Exploration
- Collaboration
- Discussion
Negative spaces can carry an unspoken message of silence and disconnectedness (Eckerty, 2010).

Rate Your Office Space
- Does your space include any personal artifacts?
- Does your space reflect campus culture?
- Does your space reflect your commitment to your profession?
- Does your space build rapport with students?

Is it the students dream or the parents dream?

Chickering's Advising Definition

“The fundamental purpose of academic advising is to help students become effective agents for their own lifelong learning and personal development. Our relationships with students – the questions we raise, the perspectives we share, the resources we suggest, the short-term decisions and long-range plans we help them think through – all should aim to increase their capacity to take change of their own existence.”

(Chickering, 1994)

What is Appreciative Advising?

“Appreciative Advising is the intentional collaborative practice of asking positive, open-ended questions that help students optimize their educational experiences and achieve their dreams, goals, and potential.”

Appreciative Advising

“High impact advisors realize that the positive outcomes of advising sessions are not just limited to students; in fact, the real joy of advising occurs when advisors understand how fulfilling it is to really impact other peoples’ lives and how much they can learn from their advisees.”

-Jennifer Bloom

Why, Appreciative Advising?

“How can I use the Appreciative Advising model to support and challenge my colleagues to embrace the revolution?”
