38th Annual Conference On Academic Advising
Oct. 8-11 | Minneapolis
Students’ academic, personal, and career success has never been as important in higher education as it is today. Student persistence to completion has become a component of strategic planning goals at institutions across the globe. Research continues to demonstrate that student success initiatives must have institution-wide support with collaboration across all units of a college campus.
Academic advising is the linchpin for successful collaborative initiatives at our institutions. It is the students’ academic advising experience that connects them to the resources and services they need and teaches them skills and strategies for persistence to graduation. Throughout students’ experiences on college campuses, regardless of institutional type, mission, or size, their academic advising experiences and the one-on-one relationships students build with academic advisors ensure their success.
