Defining the Role of Faculty within Advising at Community Colleges

Description :Category : Digital Recordings

As student enrollments increase and public funding decreases many community colleges are asking faculty to join professional advisors and counselors in advising students. Establishing and maintaining strong collaborations between all advisors is needed if we are to help community college students reach their goals. In this videocast panel discussion, NACADA Executive Director Charlie Nutt leads NACADA Two-Year Colleges Commission Chair Todd Taylor (Columbus State Community College), Krista Burrell (Lake Land College), and Ruben "Mike" Flores (Palo Alto College) in a conversation about how to define the roles of the different types of academic advisors and how to use these role definitions to provide effective and comprehensive academic advising experiences for all community college students.
