Advising Load and Effectiveness
- Review advising responsibilities across campus, focusing on the effectiveness of our current advising system(s) and the corresponding accountability structure.
- Examine various advising strategies based on existing research, with a focus on the effectiveness of centralized vs. decentralized vs. hybrid models.
- Review research-based best practices for advising students; identify gaps, if any.
- Review available data on student satisfaction with advising (from existing surveys).
- Implement ‘quick hits’ where possible.
- Evaluate feasibility of changes to current advising system(s) and practices, and make recommendations regarding next steps. Recommendations need to be realistic given our current budget realities (i.e., no new positions).
