Topic: Enhanced Advising Using Starfish. This fall marks our first semester piloting a web-based advising and retention software called Starfish. Starfish equips faculty members to raise alerts, give kudos, and refer students to helpful campus resources. We'll begin with a brief Starfish demo, then start the discussion. What are your biggest advising challenges? How do you keep notes of your advising meetings? Finally, how can using Starfish help us become better advisors? Whether you're already an ‘early adopter' of Starfish or are looking to get started, please join Marni Dunning, Associate Director for Instructional Services, GTS and Tom McHugh, Director, Center for Academic Resources & Enhancement (CARE) for the discussion. Program at 11:30 a.m. and again at 12:30 p.m. Free lunch at Three Crowns buffet, then meet in the Heritage Room.
