Adviser As Teacher Rubric
Philosophy - Effective education reaches far beyond the classroom through a co-curricular approach to student activities. Among the goals of student organizations is the opportunity for development of the whole person and for creating a sense of belonging. A critical component is leadership development, which may encompass experiences at the university, college, department, or community levels. The adviser holds the key to the progression of leadership development. The Adviser as Teacher approach to advising is antithetical to the laissez-faire position, which holds that the responsibilities for organizations reside fully with students.

Rubric for Undergraduate Research Student Learning and Development Outcomes
Undergraduate research is defined by the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) as “an inquiry or investigation conducted by an undergraduate that makes an original intellectual or creative contribution to the discipline.” Bosso and Mabrouk state that “undergraduate research is a transformative collaboration between undergraduates and supervising faculty on research that extends knowledge or creative works that offer novel insights. These activities utilize the standard research or creative practices of the relevant discipline with the intent of contributing the resulting original work to the scrutiny of the greater university scholarly and artistic communities.”
