Touchdowns to Textbooks, Panel Discussion - NACADA National Convention
By Wesley Maas
Absolutely amazing opportunity to present with this panel on“From Touchdowns to Textbooks: Life Stories in Advising Student-Athletes” at the 2018 NACADA National Convention. Our panel was comprised of experienced members of the Academic Advising, Athletic Advising, and Athletic Administration communities at varying levels of NCAA competition. Through the use of guided questions, panelists will share with attendees their life stories in working with student-athletes, offer insight into their approaches to advising this population, and share strategies for helping students navigate the complex intersections between athletic participation and academics. Panelists from various backgrounds and experiences will share their problem-solving techniques used to assist student-athletes in balancing several important facets of life. Join Katharine Moffat (Uni of Hawaii at Manoa), Will Lewis (Uni of Georgia), Kaydee Emperley (Washburn Uni) and I for this incredible session!
