Advising with Empathy – Rimi Marwah, Director of Academic Advising at UNLV
Planning and consistent communication are Rimi Marwah’s tools of the trade.
Marwah, director of academic advising for the Greenspun College of Urban Affairs, usually describes an adviser’s job as an effort to “see the forest through the trees.” She and fellow advising staff constantly look for complications that could derail student progress.
When the global coronavirus pandemic struck, Marwah and the staff used that awareness and those tools to build a reliable, remote advising infrastructure for Urban Affairs students.
“Advisers play an utterly vital role in every student’s success. We’re there when they get here on day one,” she said, whether that’s in person or online.
