The Developing Role of Student Advising: An Interview with Charlie Nutt
Harborth, Arlene
Journal of Developmental Education, v39 n1 p18-20 Fall 2015
Charlie Nutt has been an active member of the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA) since 1991 and currently is the NACADA Executive Director. NACADA promotes and supports quality academic advising in institutions of higher education to enhance the educational development of students. Nutt's current responsibilities as executive director of NACADA include responsibility for coordinating the work of the executive office staff as well as working with various NACADA units on professional development and external relations of the association. This article presents a transcript of Arlene Harborth's interview with Nutt delving into topics such as how the growing diversity of today's students in higher education has changed and possibly expanded the role of academic advisor, the role NACADA plays in the professionalization of college advising, "intensive" weekly advising for developmental students, how advisors can be actively involved in "engagement and immersion" with developmental students to facilitate their success, and structuring academic advising to more effectively meet the needs of the growing veteran and active military student population.
