Improve your retention rates by learning new approaches to advising from three of the country’s leading authorities on academic support services.

Research shows that effective academic advising is a key strategy for increasing student persistence and success. However, few campuses implement a strategic approach to providing effective academic advising. This event will bring together institutional teams to take an in-depth look at how to coordinate professional advising, faculty advising, and institutional support for advising to best retain and support students across campus.

The conference will kick off with a retention simulation to help you understand the key risk factors that cause students to drop out of school, taking an in-depth look at the research on retention and student success as it relates to advising. You will then explore the key elements of an effective advising program: advising mission, organization, training, delivery, and assessment. These sessions provide content, activities and action-planning time that will help you determine how to implement or improve these key elements on your campus. The final day of the conference is geared toward helping you finalize an action plan to improve advising on your campus. The sessions will focus on how to prioritize efforts and implement change through presentations, faculty-facilitated discussions, and work time.
