Event Description

Learn Strategies for Proactively Delivering Academic Advising to Maximize Student Success

Academic advising plays a critical role in the support and retention of college students. Academic advisors are looked upon to provide accurate, timely information to broad student populations with diverse needs. When students encounter difficulties, they may point to lack of information and support as the source, maintaining, “Nobody told me,” “I didn’t know where to go,” “My advisor is never available” as the reason for their problems. Alternately, advisors are challenged with managing inquiries and requests from increasingly large advisee populations, and may not perceive time for including proactive outreach into their daily functions.

In this session, expert speaker Sue Ohrablo, Ed.D., will discuss strategies for proactively delivering academic advising and student support in an effort to engage students, help them to avoid potential obstacles, provide information, and manage advisor workload. Proactive advising is an extremely effective way of letting your students know you care about them. In a time when student enrollments are decreasing, it is essential to engage our students in order to maximize their success as well as institutional effectiveness.
