Department of Higher Education Leadership, Management and Policy and Department of Professional Psychology and Family Therapy
Graduate students' experiences with campus-based support services and advisement.
Developing, and understanding the impact of, student support systems on campus has been a priority for researchers and administrators in higher education, focusing on academic success. Recently, a rising concern about graduate students' mental health has heightened awareness about the nationwide deficiency of population specific support systems on campus for the graduate student population. When compared to the general population, graduate students are six times more likely to experience depression and anxiety (Evans, Bira, Gastelum, Weiss, & Vanderford, 2018). Given this critical reality, we propose a guided discussion to explore graduate student experiences with support on campus, including the role and impact of an advisor. This discussion will also consider perceptions of faculty/professors' advising responsibilities, contributors to "good fit" between students and their advisor, individuality of rapport building, qualifications or training of faculty advisors, realistic expectations when compared to current realities, and the challenges inherent in assessing and evaluating advisement. Our goal in convening this guided discussion is to share information about graduate student support systems, provide a more comprehensive understanding of the current community climate, and expose potential gaps in the higher education and related literature for future research.

Leading to Discovery - A Path toward an Authentic Life
Reflecting on Bernard Lonergan's account of human development leads one to consider the relationship between self-appropriation and authenticity.
