Quality Advising for Student
Development, Retention and Completion
|Research in the area of retention, in nearly all instances, concludes that the single most important contributor to student persistence and completion 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 and completion planning.
