Exemplary Practices in Academic Advising

Recognition and Reward

The University Faculty Senate legislation calls for "Recognition of the place of advising in the general rewards structure."

Ideal Practice

Academic advisers (both faculty and staff) should be appropriately recognized and rewarded for their work.
