Faculty Advising to Support Student Learning
Williamson, Laurel V.; Goosen, Rebecca A.; Gonzalez, George F., Jr.
Journal of Developmental Education, v38 n1 p20-22, 24 Fall 2014
This article describes the implementation of a program undergirded by the theme of faculty and staff supports that physically brings advising to the point of instruction. Research shows that establishing a strong institutional connection with students improves retention, persistence, and success. What better way to do this than take advising into the classroom and create a strong partnership between faculty and student services to provide support, information, and career direction? Sustained through an ongoing dialogue between instruction and student development professionals, classroom activities and wrap-around support services can be uniquely focused on the individual student. The college found that advising becomes a tool delivered by a faculty-student services team that holds students accountable while providing needed assistance along the student's educational pathway.
