Session Is Over
Rachel Armstrong, Honors Academic Advisor, College of Engineering Honors Program and Megan Langille, Academic Advisor, Multidisciplinary Design Program
This program is for student affairs professionals supporting students in making intentional, authentic choices that enhance their own development and well-being. While our students explore internships, joining student organizations, and deciding among majors, they are constantly facing overwhelming demands on their time, attention, and energy. While many perceive that “more is better” when it comes to making complex choices, research has demonstrated that more options often leads to unrealistic expectations, diminished satisfaction, and stress for students. This session, drawing from relevant student affairs and advising theories, will explore several approaches to empowering students (and ourselves!) toward values-based choices.
