“Beyond Satisfaction and Retention: Assessment that Matters for Academic Advisors”
by Wendy Troxel, Illinois State University
Thursday, November 21st, Noon – 1:00 p.m.
Please join us on the 21st to hear from Wendy Troxel about assessment. You may recognize her name from her chapter in Academic Advising: A Comprehensive Handbook Second Edition, titled “Assessing the Effectiveness of the Advising Program.” This is a workshop format that focuses specifically on advising.
Wendy Troxel, Illinois State University
Student Legal Services 4:00pm – 5:00pm 3057 Lincoln Hall. Happy Hour for further conversations at Firehaus!
Purpose of Student Legal Services
- Student Legal Service is to inform students of practical aspects of the law as applied to their individual problem. In addition, in-court representation is available in many cases.
- Priority is given to matters for which a student would be financially unable to retain an attorney. This is determined by income guidelines established by the Student Legal Service Plan. It is believed that a majority of the students will qualify for individual representation under those guidelines. Income guidelines do not apply to landlord/tenant cases.
