Introducing the MIACADA Book Club
Starting in the spring of 2016, MIACADA would like to encourage Michigan advisors to get reading! As a follow up to the November 5th NACADA Webinar Academic Advising for High Achieving Students: Strategies that Foster Resilience, MIACADA has selected Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol Dweck as our first Book Club book. Please join us in reading this intriguing look into the way the mind works, then join the conversation at the MIACADA annual conference on May 20th at Ferris State University. Also, be on the lookout later this month for an opportunity to win a copy of the book from MIACADA!

The 2016 MIACADA Conference Call for Proposals is now open. Deadline is February 12, 2016.

Intersectionality: Understanding Our Students' Multifaceted Identities
Wednesday, April 13, 2016
2:00pm-3:00pm Eastern Time

In April 2015, a team of panelists, sponsored by the NACADA Diversity Committee, came to the Webinar platform to discuss Academic Advising and Social Justice: Privilege, Diversity, and Student Success, laying the foundation for the topic in this venue. They shared information and discussed strategies designed to help advisors form stronger relationships with students, identify challenges and roadblocks faced by students, create individualized solutions to increase student success, and reconceptualize advising around issues of social justice.

Attendees for this event requested more information related to social justice and advising. One said, "I think it should be a series on social justice issues where you look at things in a particular way that will empower others." Our panelists agree, and therefore Sarah E. Stevens will return, joined by three new colleagues, to discuss how the concept of intersectionality can inform our relationships with students, our advising practices, and the ways in which we foster student success.
