Importance of, Responsibility for, and Satisfaction with Academic Advising: A Faculty Perspective
Allen, Janine M.; Smith, Cathleen L.
Journal of College Student Development, v49 n5 p397-411 Sep-Oct 2008
A convenient response to the perennial problem of student dissatisfaction with academic advising is to simply say that faculty need to do more and better advising. In this study, faculty were surveyed about their attitudes toward, and experiences with, academic advising. Results showed that faculty, although generally satisfied with the advising they provide, do not necessarily feel responsible for all of the kinds of academic advising they believe are important for students to receive. These findings point to a gap in advising services that we suggest might best be bridged through faculty and student affairs partnerships. (Contains 4 tables.)
