Synopsis

One of the challenges in higher education is helping students to achieve academic success while ensuring their personal and vocational needs are fulfilled. In this updated edition more than thirty experts offer their knowledge in what has become the most comprehensive, classic reference on academic advising. They explore the critical aspects of academic advising and provide insights for full-time advisors, counselors, and those who oversee student advising or have daily contact with advisors and students.

  • New chapters on advising administration and collaboration with other campus services
  • A new section on perspectives on advising including those of CEOs, CAOs (chief academic officers), and CSAOs (chief student affairs officers)
  • More emphasis on two-year colleges and the importance of research to the future of academic advising
  • New case studies demonstrate how advising practices have been put to use.
