Commitment to Continuous Learning
At Berkeley, our approach to supporting students is equity-oriented and strengths-based. We are committed to self-reflection, continuous learning, and mitigating bias in all aspects of our work.
Acquiring, applying, and refining the Foundations of Practice (outlined below) is an ongoing and necessary process to support student success. Continuous learning is at the heart of a mature and sophisticated practice that includes regular reflection and refinement of approaches and methods. These five foundations are designed to help guide your learning and growth. They are at the core of all Advancing Practice workshops, as well as the various other materials available to you on the Advising Strategy + Training Program website. Centering the Foundations of Practice, our team also partnered with Berkeley People & Culture to define a Student Services (Advising) Learning Pathway to offer guidance and suggestions around specific professional development opportunities for our job family.
