Shaffer, Leigh S.
NACADA Journal, v17 n1 p5-12 Spr 1997
Describes an approach to academic advising based on the concept that the advisor's role is to increase the student's human capital. Outlines five categories of personal characteristics that add to a worker's human capital (formal education, adult education, on-the-job training, health, geographic mobility), noting issues in each category that should be raised during advising meetings.
