|Graduate Training Track|
The field of fraternity/sorority advising is incredibly dynamic. For graduate students especially, there a multitude of experiences and opportunities to navigate. With understanding your core values as the basis, the Graduate Training Track (GTT) will help graduate students develop a philosophy and approach to their work, understand the practical application of the AFA Core Competencies for Excellence in the Profession, identify and navigate key organizational dynamics, and develop initial strategies for change management.
GTT is endowed by Michelle Guobadia, Associate Dean of Students and Director for Fraternity/Sorority Life at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte. GTT programming is made possible through a generous gift from Michelle Guobadia through an endowment with the AFA Foundation.
All GTT webinars can be found below.
Finding Comfort Within the Uncomfortable: A Framework for Developing Confidence and Competence in Navigating the Transition Process
May 23, 2019 | 12:30 - 1:30 p.m. EDT
Did you just finish your first year of graduate school and are still feeling unsure about what the next year holds? Maybe you just graduated and are preparing to begin a new full-time position. Regardless of the circumstance, transitions can be intimidating, exciting, nerve-wracking, rejuvenating, and so many other feelings rolled into one. As with any change process, it is important to understand yourself, your values and priorities, and how you can best position yourself for navigating the challenges and opportunities that will inevitably emerge along the way.
During this webinar, we will utilize the AFA Core Competencies to shape a conversation around your experience as a graduate student in transition in an effort to spark ongoing reflection, planning, and action for short and long term personal and professional success.
