Luncheon Discussion: Preceptorial Basics

Thursday, February 7, 2013 from 12:15 p.m. – 1:45 p.m.  in KIPJ – A

Preceptorial courses began at USD in 1973 to address rising student attrition. The program was an immediate success and was expanded as first year class sizes increased.  The goals of providing effective academic advising to first year students, introducing students to the university’s intellectual atmosphere, academic program planning, and establishing early and continuing communication between students and their advisors have continued. Additional resources were established in recent years to help foster an integrative learning approach and support the special role of preceptor. In this session, Dr. Jim Gump, Associate Dean, College of Arts and Sciences will:

  • Provide an overview of preceptorial program
  • Explain the nature and extent of the commitment to teach a preceptorial
  • Offer tips and tools for the academic advisor
  • Clarify the Preceptorial Assistant student mentor positions
  • Detail compensation for serving as a preceptor
