Proactive advising (formerly known as Intrusive Academic Advising) was defined by the work of Robert Glennen. Glennen took developmental advising theory one step further to help advisors reach out to students. Programs utilizing proactive academic advising build structures that incorporate intervention strategies mandating advising contacts for students who otherwise might not seek advising.
