Adaptation in the Ivory Tower: Deciphering the Implementation of Institutional Academic Advising Policy
Clapp, Marlene
College and University, v83 n1 p12-21, 23-25 2007
This study explored the policy process related to official institutional academic advising statement policy at two higher education institutions in the United States. As indicated by recent press, institutions are turning to such formalized advising policy as a means to facilitate their advising operations, which historically have been ill-perceived in the United States. A main conclusion was that policy implementation not only seems to take on unique characteristics at the institutional level, but that it also evolves within the loosely coupled framework of American colleges and universities themselves. Several recommendations for institutions seeking to implement official institutional academic advising statement policy are outlined. (Contains 1 table and 4 footnotes.)
