Are you passionate about advising? Academic advising is recognized as a key factor in retaining students and maintaining their progress to graduation. SPSU faculty now have the opportunity to enhance their advising skills by pursuing the designation of “SPSU Master Advisor”. A Master Advisor must be a full-time faculty at SPSU. The Master Advisor title honors faculty who: are recognized as having demonstrated advanced competencies in advising-related areas; have a desire to continue to expand their advising expertise; and demonstrate through their attitudes and actions a desire and passion for advising. Master Advisor candidates will pursue professional development in the area of advising, will conduct a self-assessment related to advising, and will develop a portfolio highlighting their expertise and commitment to effective advising. The Master Advisor designation recognizes achievement and dedication in the area of student advising. The Master Advisor designation does not require additional responsibilities; however Master Advisor’s will be resources to other faculty who seek to pursue excellence in advising. All faculty receiving the Master Advisor designation will also receive a one-time payment of $1,000 as Extra Compensation. The Master Advisor designation will be given to individuals who successfully complete the requirements outlined below.
The Master Advisor Track requires a three year commitment with the following activities to be completed each year.
