Academic advisors are often the front-line campus professionals who interact with college students. These faculty and professional advisors are presented with the opportunity to offer academic support and guidance during a student’s academic journey. Research has demonstrated that quality academic advising and a good advisor/advisee relationship can play a significant role in student satisfaction, success, and retention. This presentation will address several key advising areas on our campus including:
- Advising models and styles
- Advisors’ role in student satisfaction, success, retention, and graduation
- Advising at The University of Mississippi
Faculty advisors Kerry Scott (Liberal Arts– Chemistry & Biochemistry), Cy Rosenblatt (Liberal Arts– Political Science), and Brad Crowe (Applied Sciences– Communicative Sciences & Disorders) will join me in this informative discussion on how efficient and effective advising not only benefits the students, but also the entire university community.
Dr. Kyle Ellis serves as the Director of the Academic Support Center, a member on the university’s Retention Steering Committee, and currently serves on the Board of Directors for the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA).
