Faculty Advising Survey Results, 1996 through 2001.
Perry, Janet C.
This faculty advising survey examines the responses of 100 faculty members at Fox Valley Technical College in Wisconsin. Some of the key findings of the survey are as follows: (1) the majority of faculty who responded agree that providing student advising is necessary and beneficial; (2) the three most important things faculty advisers need are more time to meet with students, more private office space, and lower advisor/advisee ratios; (3) faculty identified the need for instructional managers to recognize the importance of advising and provide more time for advising; (4) faculty indicated that direct contact with students presented them with the opportunity to have a positive impact on the student's educational experience; (5) the top three areas of teaching responsibility that have been reduced due to student advising time were office time, prep time, and curriculum work; (6) faculty are working with more advisees than they have in the past; (7) the three most typical reasons faculty met with their advisees were course scheduling/next semester registration, career guidance, and general advice; (8) 50% of respondents indicated that the present time devoted to advising students is adequate; and (9) 82% of the faculty responding to the survey were full-time. (Includes numerous charts and tables and the survey questionnaire.) (NB)
