Important Events in the Development of Academic Advising in the United States
Cook, Sandra
NACADA Journal, v29 n2 p18-40 Fall 2009
The development of academic advising parallels the history of higher education and reflects decades of student personnel work. Changes in funding, curricula, students, and faculty roles have all affected the means by which students have been advised. The evolution of advising eventually led to the formation of NACADA in 1979. Since 2001, when I last documented the history of academic advising in the "Mentor", I have expanded the benchmark information and references. I also added key advising events in the new millennium. (Contains 102 endnotes.)
