  18. A key question:Does academic advising matter to student success?

  19. Research has shown that advising improves student retention rates through the establishment of relationships with faculty or staff members who help students to clarify their academic and career goals. Noel Levitz 2006

  20. There is a relationship between advising and retention. Agree/strongly agree 86%Disagree 4% Brown Faculty Survey, 2001-2012

  21. Academic advising is the onlystructured activity on campus in whichall studentshave the opportunity for on-going one-to-one interactionwith aconcerned representativeof the institution.Wes Habley, ACT

  22. Redefining academic advising:From an event to a process that is integrally linked to student engagement and learning. Much more than a service that supports registration….

  32. Why do students leave college? Isolation Inability to connect with significant members of the campus community….

  33. The more interaction students have with faculty and staff, the more likely they are to learn effectively and persist toward achievement of their educational goals. CCSSE

  34. Transforming Students Through Validation Success appears to be contingent on whether faculty and staff can validate students in an academic or interpersonal way. Rendon, 1994, 2002

  35. Some Institutions seem to be more effective than others in helping students from a wide range of abilities and backgrounds succeed…How College Affects Students Pascarella & Terenzini, 2005

  38. Intrusive Academic Advising What is intrusive academic advising??

  39. Aggressive Academic Advising?

  40. Invasive Academic Advising?

  41. Origins of Intrusive Advising “Reduction of Attrition Through Intrusive Advising” Robert Glennen & Dan Baxley NASPA Journal, v22 n3 p10-14 Win 1985

  42. The intrusive model of advising is action-oriented in involving and motivating students to seek help when needed. Utilizing the good qualities of prescriptive advising (expertise, awareness of student needs, structured programs) and of developmental advising (relationship to a student's total needs), intrusive advising is a direct response to an identified academic crisis with a specific program of action….Earl, 1987

  43. Intrusive Advising?

  44. Intrusive Advising?

  45. Active Outreach Advising??

  46. Active Outreach Advising Does not mean “hand holding” or parenting. Rather, it does mean active concern and a willingness to assist students to explore programs and services to improve their skills and motivate them to persist toward their goals.

  47. Active Outreach Advising Taking a personal interest in students and approaching them with an open caring attitude. A personal relationship with a concerned member of the campus community can reduce the psychological distance that hinders academic integration.

  48. Proactive (Intrusive) Advising Involves • deliberate interventions to enhance student motivation, • using strategies to show interest and involvement with students, • intensive advising designed to increase the probability of student success, • working to educate students on all options, • approaching students before situations develop. Jennifer Varney, 2012

  49. The intrusive model is proactiveand seeks to address problems as they emerge, rather than being reactive. Essentially, advisors reach out to helpstudentsinstead of waitingfor students to seek help. University of Minnesota General College

  50. The theoretical framework of intrusive advising is based on three postulates: • Advisors can be trained to identify students who need and can benefit from this kind of intervention. • Students DO respond to direct contact in which a problem in their academic life is identified and a resource or assistance is offered.
