Given the goals of SAM, Nicholls committed to ongoing faculty development workshops, or trainings focused on the standards and expectations of professional advising, the principles of intrusive advising, and the various realities — the ‘nuts and bolts’ of advising students on our campus. As expressed in SAM,
The advisor training and development components of the QEP will be organized through a three-tiered system of training: a foundational level of training and development followed by the option for advisors to achieve two more levels of certification as “add ons” to their foundation training. These “add on” options will be facilitated as part of the SAM advisor training and development activities or as part of offerings through the CAFÉ or other medium.
