Exemplary Practices in Academic Advising

Support

The University Faculty Senate legislation calls for "Appropriate information, resources, and electronic systems to work effectively with students."

Ideal Practice

An academic advising program must have the staff, funding, suitably located facilities, and technological support necessary to accomplish its goals. The technological support should include an academic advising home page identified prominently on the unit's home page, readily accessible to students and advisers. The academic advising home page should include a link to eLion and the e-mail opportunity for students to correspond with appropriate advising personnel in the program. Academic advising programs must also offer a listserv for advisers and students.
