Group Interaction as a Vehicle to Facilitate Faculty-Student Advisement.
Miller, William B.; Hutchins, David E.
This article described an experiment using group procedures as a means of training faculty members and student peer-helpers to conduct student advisement in a college setting with entering freshmen. Results suggested that the group process can assist in overcoming certain limitations of more traditional faculty-student advisement activities by expanding the range of topics and concerns dealt with, utilizing the group process as a partial substitute for professional counseling services, and providing a basic reference group in which students can share ideas, feelings and concerns before they become crises. Group advisement procedures were used as a method of integrating the student personnel and academic functions of the college for the overall benefit of student, faculty, and student personnel administrators.
