Senior Master Advisors are given the opportunity to mentor new Master Advisor candidates and Master Advisor workshops or training sessions. The goal of the Senior Master Advisor status is to provide leadership opportunities to Master Advisors who have proven themselves as skilled and knowledgeable advisors at NKU.
Attendance at the Master Advisor Seminar (usually offered over Fall break) will satisfy this requirement.
Workshops, luncheons, professional development sessions, attending conferences, and/or advising-related activities that relate to the needs of your particular academic program or advising office count as Master Advisor events. Master Advisor Events should be completed prior to April 1st.
This is due after the other requirements are completed, and should be a reflection of how your view of advising has changed or updated after completion of Master Advisor related events at NKU.
Applicants will be notified whether or not their application for Senior Master Advisor status has been accepted before the Outstanding Advisor Awards Breakfast in late April.
Senior Master Advisor candidates will be assigned a mentee (a newly-certified Master Advisor OR a newly-hired professional advisor) who is from a different academic department than their own. The Senior Master Advisor Candidate will mentor the advisor over the course of the 12 months following acceptance of the application.
It is reserved for advisors who are active university citizens and who have significantly impacted academic advising. Senior Master Advisors who have met the requirements below are eligible for this status.
Advisors of Distinction will retain their status while they remain in an advising-related role at NKU. No recertification is necessary. These individuals may elect to serve as a mentor to new Master Advisors from year to year; however, they will not be required to do so.
