P2: Developing a win-win internship program
2-4 pm | Monday, March 18
Maria Crockett, North Carolina State University
How do you create a meaningful and intentional internship experience that is a win-win for your department as well as the new professionals you hire as interns? What do you need to consider if your department is interested in creating internship positions or revamping an existing internship program? What are the challenges and rewards of having interns? What is your hiring process? How do you find interns who will be a good fit for your department? Participants will brainstorm and discuss these and other topics related to intern program development. Equipped with new insights and ideas, participants will design individual action plans focused on creating or improving their department’s internship program.
P3: NACADA Orientation for First-Time Conference Attendees - FREE (highly encouraged to those new to NACADA)
4-4:50 pm | Monday, March 18
As a new member or a first time attendee at a NACADA event, you most likely have questions you want answered: How can I benefit from my NACADA membership? I am only in my first year, can I even get involved? What is my NACADA region and what opportunities are available to me?
In this session, you will be introduced to NACADA: The Global Community for Academic Advising and your NACADA region. This orientation is designed to provide guidance to new members and first time attendees as they begin their journey - learn how you can make the most of your “first year experience” in NACADA and with your region. During this session you will have the opportunity to: 1) Learn about the structure and opportunities of NACADA; 2) Develop ideas for resources and networking to help you both personally and professionally in your region; and 3) Listen to colleagues share their stories and connect with other new members to the association.
Bring your questions as well as an open and reflective attitude! Your participation in this session can be the beginning of the first chapter in your NACADA story!
