Academic Counseling & Advising Workshop



Navigating the higher education system can be a daunting and confusing task. This is exacerbated when students present with special needs and challenges and don’t have clear career goals in mind. We as a system need to become more effective in our efforts to serve these students. During this workshop, we will: 1) Learn some basics of selected advising theories; 2) Share current strategies, and; 3) Gain additional ideas and strategies.
Presented by Dr. Loretta Kucharczyk, PhD an award winning presenter with nearly 30 years’ experience in Illinois higher education advising. Recipient of the John & Suanne Roueche Excellence Award (2013) from the League for Innovation in Community College.
From the evaluations:
“This workshop was beyond my expectations. I loved it.”
“Dr. Kucharczyk was a great presenter. She motivated & encouraged me to continue to do my best when advising students.”
