Exemplary Practices in Academic Advising

Policy

The University Faculty Senate legislation calls for "An advising policy stating the system's philosophy and practice and what students can expect from the advising system."

Ideal Practice

Every academic advising program in the university must have a unit-specific advising policy. This policy must be published as a complete document, disseminated to students and advisers, implemented, and regularly reviewed. This policy must be consistent with institutional advising policy.

The ideal academic advising policy statement must include the following:

  • Academic advising goals
  • Expectations for advisers and advisees
