Identifying and Navigating Ethical Challenges in Advising

Tuesday, October 23, noon–1:00 pm
118 ASI Building

Presenter: Dr. Tim Balliett, University Ethics Officer and Director for the Center for Character, Conscience and Public Purpose

As the landscape of higher education and expectations of undergraduate students change, so, too, do the ethical challenges facing advisers.  Tim will explore an ethical framework from which we will discuss several new and continuing ethical challenges in advising, including: ethical considerations in developmental, prescriptive, appreciative, intrusive advising and other approaches; enrollment challenges; institutional and student responsibility; utilization of new technologies; predictive analytics; parental dynamics; student resiliency; demographic changes; and policy and organizational culture.
