A Study of Academic Advising Satisfaction and Its Relationship to Student Worldviews
Coll, Jose E.
Journal of College Student Retention: Research, Theory & Practice, v10 n3 p391-404 2008-2009
The purpose of the present investigation was to determine the relationship between worldview and satisfaction with advising. More specifically, this study examines the relationship among level of advising satisfaction, worldviews of students, and the student's perception on advising. The findings of this study indicate that a positive relationship exists between a holistic approach to advising and advising satisfaction. Furthermore, the results suggest that overall student characteristics are not as relevant to advising satisfaction as the style of advising used by the faculty, which may influence university retention efforts.
