Pathways Program Advisor, RPT
Department: Faculty of Liberal Arts & Sciences, Pathways Programs
Work Location: North Campus, Toronto, ON

Under the direction of the Manager, Pathways Programs, the Advisor provides academic and career advising to students across Pathways Programs including Academic Upgrading, Dual Credit/School Within a College and General Arts and Sciences. The incumbent works through an equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging lens (EDIB) to support students who are college capable but who face multiple barriers to access and inclusion. By developing intentional programing that focuses on career clarity, student engagement, persistence and success the overarching goal of this role is to increase the enrolment and graduation of students who, without interventions and support, would not access and persist in PSE.

The incumbent applies theories of learning, student development and career development through individualized advising strategies and case management to successfully support students throughout their life cycle while at Humber. Through following professional best practices for academic and career advising, the incumbent works with students who have not yet declared a major program, who are seeking to change programs, or who are experiencing academic difficulty, and to other students as required. The incumbent will use a holistic approach grounded in development, intrusive and lifecycle theory and practice, designed to effectively address intersecting needs and support student success. This position will identify and support students at risk of attrition and provide early-intervention through proactive advising.
