Quality of Academic Advising at UNO: Results of Student and Faculty Surveys.
ESS Reports, v1 n3 Apr 1988
This report presents the results of a student/faculty survey on the academic advising process at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, and highlights issues in improving the advising process. The survey included 195 recent graduates, 269 existing students, and 207 faculty and professional advisors. The study found that 70.8% of students were satisfied or very satisfied with the academic advising services provided. Students felt, however, that there was little effort from advisors or faculty to get to know them as individuals. Based on research that student-faculty interaction has a stronger relationship to student satisfaction with the college experience than any other student or institutional characteristic, it is concluded that ways to encourage greater personal contact between faculty and students should be found.
