Editor: Pat Folsom Contributing Editor: Ben Chamberlain

New academic advisors note that watching a skilled veteran advisor with students is like watching an artist at work. Their conferences are “jam-packed” with information, yet have the ease and fluidity of a conversation. Until now becoming an excellent advisor has been entirely an experiential journey. Now there is a guidebook that can help new professionals master the art of academic advising.

Insightful contributions from more than 30 academic advising professionals provide new advisors with the essentials needed to help students grow and make the most out of their college experiences. A professional growth chart helps new professionals not just survive, but thrive, during their first year and beyond. Exemplary Practices from across the country highlight what colleges and universities can do to help new advisors succeed. “Voices from the Field” commentaries in each chapter offer reflections from new and experienced advisors on what it takes to move from new hire to successful advising professional.
