Event Description

The Concept of Ownership and Accountability in Academic Advising and How it Translates to Students’ Success.

Every year, institutions of higher learning (both four-year and two-year) see students come in the front door to explore their options, only to have those well-meaning options confuse, frustrate, and sometimes defeat their intended audience. Those very students in need of assistance are too often lost in a maze of program requirements, elective questions, and conflicting information.

Clear paths and true ownership of the advising process is needed for these institutions to be able to meet the needs of today’s students. Retention and graduation are terms that are often uttered in higher education meetings, but words like “ownership” and “accountability” need to be uttered, and meant, just as often. The institution as a whole has a responsibility and obligation to use every tool in their arsenal to ensure those students who come in the front door leave walk out the back to the world of transfer, certification, or completion. Accountability in advising can ensure that.

Join expert speaker Kent Seaver as he discusses the concept of accountability and ownership in academic advising and how it relates to a student success and retention approach in both two and four year colleges. For over a decade, the combination of curriculum and advising have been neck and neck as the top priorities as they relate to student’s priorities. Attendees of this session can take back to their institutions possible and practical solutions to address students from various cohorts and their need for clearly defined pathways to student success, which will also benefit the institution.

Session Highlights

  • Understand the issues students face in traditional advising situations.
  • Discuss how to implement Accountable Advising programs that can lead to Best Practices for institutions.
  • Illustrate how Accountability in Advising can lead to institutional and student success.
  • Examine The Library and Career Services as advising tools, and why they should be part of the plan.

Who should attend?

This event is perfect for those in academic advising offices, as well as faculty specifically charged with advising students in 2 and 4 year colleges. Finally, those invested in the graduation rates of colleges would benefit from understanding how this advising process relates to the eventual goal of transfer and/or graduation.
