Tuesday, November 1, 2016 - Advising Student Athletes
Webinar Overview
Intercollegiate athletics is a unique feature of higher education in America. Student-athletes who participate in intercollegiate athletics are a special population on college campuses because of the dichotomous relationship between athletics and academia. This webinar, sponsored by the NACADA Advising Student Athletes Commission, will explore the academic experience of student-athletes in higher education and will offer professionals who advise student-athletes some best practices. The goal of this webinar is to provide practicing academic advisors with experience-based and contemporary knowledge on the college student-athlete to enhance their understanding of the student-athlete population and ability to advise effectively. Focus will be on athletic culture and higher education; the student-athlete experience and identity; NCAA eligibility standards, regulations, and reform; and academic advising and support specific to student-athletes.

Karen Schiferl, Associate Athletic Director for Academic Services, Chicago State University
Adrienne Ridgeway, Associate Athletic Director, Academic Support & Student Programs, Marquette University
