Quick Start Advising Guide

A Quick Start Guide to Inclusive Advising for New STEM Faculty

(Please complete form below to download)

This quick-start guide is designed for new STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) faculty interested in inclusively advising students from all backgrounds, especially students from backgrounds historically underrepresented in higher education in the U.S. and in STEM in particular (e.g., first-generation in college, and LGBTQIA+ students). We recognize that new faculty face numerous challenges in their various student-focused campus roles (e.g., teachers, researcher mentors, and advisors), as well as their peer-focused roles (e.g., colleagues and leaders). This guide is intended to provide support to you in becoming aware of the skills and knowledge that you will need to begin your journey as a more inclusive faculty member.
