But You Teach Chemistry, How Can You Advise Me at Orientation?
Mastrodicasa, Jeanna M.
This paper reviews a model of using teaching faculty as academic advisors during freshman orientation at the University of Florida. This way of hiring and training faculty members provides: student-faculty contact; accurate information and scheduling; fairness and accessibility of course seats; and the ability to manage academic advising during freshman orientation at a large public university. The goal of this model is to have students on track for the Universal Tracking program and the model achieves more than 98% accuracy rate with its new students. Detailed information is provided on the entire orientation advising program so that orientation directors, academic advisors, and other enrollment management professionals will be able to follow the model.
