Quality Advising for
and Retention

Research in the area of retention, in nearly all instances, concludes that the single most important contributor to student persistence is the development of strong relationships between students and members of the faculty and staff. Because academic advising is the only structured service on the campus in which all students have the opportunity to develop an on-going, one-to-one relationship with a concerned member of the college community, quality academic advising should be a major strategy in every college's retention planning.

Who Should Attend:

The institute is designed for individuals or teams who have responsibility for academic advising, such as:
  • Teams or individuals from an institution desiring to refine or redesign campus advising services (see the link to the right for more details on bringing a team) 
  • Academic advising campus task force members
  • Advising program directors
  • Academic Advisors
  • Academic Counselors
  • Faculty Advisors
  • Campus administrators including deans or vice presidents with responsibility for advising
