Morillo, Janell Lorraine
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, California State University, Fresno
Advising programs serve as a conduit between the university, and the students' educational, personal and career goals. There are many different advising models in post-secondary institutions. The intrusive advising program is based on the assumption that closer communication and stronger personal relationships between advisor and student make attrition less likely. Frequent and meaningful contact with advisors is expected to increase students' involvement and motivation. The "Intrusive Advising Model" is multi-faceted in that it involves a combination of advising sessions with specific goals targeted for students. Intrusive advising programs are proactive. They are intended to intervene with at-risk students in order to keep students retained and on track to graduate. They are more highly-structured than alternative advising programs. Intrusive programs attempt to foster personal relationships between the students and their advisors with frequent student contact, and the goal to increase university retention. Do advising programs affect students' progress? If they do, which programs are most effective? Does the type of program interact with the kind of student served? This study examined the impact of an intrusive advising program on grade point average, retention and progression to graduation for 2nd and 3rd year Hispanic students.
