KAAN 2021 Conference Program

BYOB: Building Your Own Bridges

John Donne wrote, “No man is an island.”  The same can, and should, be said about advisors.  No advisor is out there on their own.  Whether at our own institution or when thinking of the advising community at-large, we all are part of the whole.  Yet, there are times when we can feel isolated or separate.  The students we serve may also feel isolated from time to time.  Therefore, we must each become a bridge builder.

Bridges serve as points of connection.  Providing a means to connect one point to another, one person to another person, and one community to another community.  How can you become a bridge builder?
