“A Program on the New General Education Requirements for Fall 2001” is the title of the Academic Advising Round Table on Feb. 2. The talk, which is open to university faculty and staff members, is sponsored by Academic Support and Advising Services and the Office of the Provost.

Provost Peter Stearns opens the round table with a discussion on the importance of advising and general education. Sheryl Beach, associate provost for general education, speaks next on the difference between the new and old general education requirements.

Numerous advising scenarios, including how to advise transfer students and when students should take courses, will also be discussed at the event. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions.

The goal of the discussion is to help faculty advisors implement the new general education requirements. “The event is a way to get us all ready to meet the challenges that the new general education requirements bring to advising,” says Beach.

The round table is held Friday, Feb. 2 from noon to 2 p.m. in the SUB II Ballroom. Lunch will be served and reservations are required. To reserve your place, call x32470 by Jan. 26.
