*The 2017 NCHC Honors Advising Institute is SOLD OUT*

Institute Focus:

The new NCHC Program Review Instrument states that honors students should receive honors-related academic advising from qualified faculty and/or staff. In this intensive workshop, we will discuss key theoretical foundations of advising and how to implement those frameworks in the context of advising honors students.

The institute will be comprised of three primary blocks:

  • Advising theory: frameworks/concepts
  • Student interaction: Practical approaches to working with high-achieving students and students with holistic-needs
  • Adviser needs: Professional development; stepping in when your dean/director doesn't quite get advising, etc.

Facilitator:
Dr. Melissa Johnson works as both Associate Director and Advisor of the University of Florida Honors Program; and is an Affiliate Faculty member of the Bob Graham Center for Public Service. Johnson also serves on the NCHC Board of Directors as a Professional Member, is part of the NCHC Professional Development and Research committees, and is an NCHC Program Reviewer. Johnson is past chair of the Advising High Achieving Students Commission for the National Academic Advising Center and serves as a consultant with the NACADA Academic Advising Consultant and Speaker Service.

 

Venue:
The institute sessions and formal discussions will take place at The Lincoln Marriott Cornhusker Hotel. This historical space in the heart of downtown Lincoln is conveniently located to many downtown activities, within a short walk to the Nebraska State Capitol, and houses a Nebraska artist-in-residency. The hotel offers large conference rooms for our institute to take place--which are all located in the basement of the hotel. Breakfast will be provided for each morning of the institute.  

 

Travel:

An exclusive airfare discount is available for honors advising attendees through United. Navigate to United and enter Flight Discount Code ZYJP320790.

If you are not planning to rent a car, we recommend flying into the Lincoln Municipal Airport (LNK) rather than Omaha Eppley Airfield (OMA.) Sometimes you can find less expensive flights into Omaha, but Lincoln is located approximately an hour from that airport, and finding adequate ground transportation between the cities can be a hassle. The Lincoln airport is less than 10 minutes from the hotel, so ultimately, flying into LNK could save you a lot of stress.

 

Hotel:
We are so thrilled to welcome you to our home in Lincoln, Nebraska, and even more happy to offer you a relaxing stay at one of the capital city's most distinguished hotels: The Lincoln Marriott Cornhusker Hotel.
