Assignment 2.1: Article Review

Download Article – “Can Advisors Break Barriers”

In the article, Can Advisors For Student Groups Help Break Barriers? By Robert Lion (2013), he discusses three student development theories. Lion stated “I believe there are students in our programs, due to visible as well as invisible barriers, who aren’t necessarily afforded the same opportunities for involvement. To a certain extent, adopting a theoretical framework for advising can help increase the opportunities for students to become involved and invested members of the group.” 

  1. Thinking about the quote above, prepare a response highlighting the relevance of at least one of the student development theories in relation to your role as an advisor. (100 words minimum) 
  2. Reply to a fellow advisor’s response.
