Advising Community on Appreciative Advising

This community identifies and addresses issues pertaining to the theory-to-practice framework of Appreciative Advising. Ongoing discussions focus on how best to implement the six phases of Appreciative Advising in a variety of advising contexts and with a diverse array of students.

Two things you need to know about Appreciative Advising

  • Appreciative Advising is a framework for delivering high quality advising services. This allows advisors to adapt the framework to meet their needs and those of their students.
  • The focus of Appreciative Advising involves building trusting relationships with students, peers, and faculty. We build those relationships by asking generative, open-ended questions and carefully listening to the answers and stories.
