As an added benefit of the post-conference workshop, you will receive an electronic Staff Demand Forecasting model template. Using ‘work-load analysis’ as applied to higher education, an adoptable forecasting spreadsheet helps directors and office managers set policy and inform practice to predict realistic levels for current employees. This template was developed specifically for academic advisors and success coaches to determine caseload levels, advising duties and other responsibilities. It is easily adoptable to most higher education areas. In addition to understanding the level of workload for current staff, it may be used to articulate the need for additional staffing in a data driven format that leaves no doubt as to what additional staffing could achieve if funded.
Amjad Ayoubi oversees academic and career advising, success coaching, academic support services such as tutoring and supplemental instruction and academic services for student athletes. Amjad joined Tulane University after Hurricane Katrina; helped rebuild Career Services operations; and later helped reorganize, expand, and enhance academic advising. In 2012 Amjad and his staff initiated a new success coaching department modeled after a life coaching model. Amjad supports a team of dedicated staff who helped increase the retention rate at Tulane from 87% to 92% and the graduation rate from 78% to 83% in the past six years.
Amjad believes that integrating academic and career advising is critical to the overall success of students and the university. He also believes that building an ecosystem that contains integrated academic and career advising will help students connect their education to their future career goals and will help the university deliver services in a more coherent and intentional manner.
