Ryan, Carol C.
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n62 p35-42 Sum 1995
Faculty need more general institutional information and training if they are to perform effectively as academic advisors. Three key elements in their preparation for this function are: a conceptual understanding of student development and of the advising process; institutional and curricular information; and relational skills and knowledge to create a welcoming, nonjudgmental atmosphere for students.
