The current selection includes two chapters from the just released, 2nd edition of The New Advisor Guidebook. Join IlliAAC as we read and discuss these chapters that ask us to reflect on and overcome our assumptions about various student populations. We have a Google Doc available where advisors from across the University of Illinois can discuss the material ahead of the webinar. We look forward to a robust discussion on this extremely timely topic.

Current NACADA President John Paul (JP) Regalado, President-Elect David Spight, Vice-President-Elect Dana Zahorik, and Executive Director Charlie Nutt all understand from personal experience exactly what the First Lady – and the students in the K-State documentary – are talking about, for all four were themselves First Generation Students. Sponsored by the NACADA First Generation College Student Advising Interest Group, on Wednesday, September 16th, JP, David, Dana, and Charlie will come to the Webinar platform to discuss their experiences – what challenges they faced, what inspired them, what helped them overcome. Plan to join us for an inspiring hour as our top NACADA Leaders share what it has meant to them to be First Gen Students and what we can do as academic advisors to help First Gen students achieve academic success.
