Importance of, Responsibility for, and Satisfaction With Academic Advising: A Faculty Perspective.

Importance of, Responsibility for, and Satisfaction With Academic Advising: A Faculty Perspective.

A convenient response to the perennial problem of student dissatisfaction with academic advising is to simply say that faculty need to do more and better advising. We surveyed faculty about their attitudes toward, and experiences with, academic advising. We found that faculty, although generally satisfied with the advising they provide, do not necessarily feel responsible for all of the kinds of academic advising they believe are needed by students. These findings point to a gap that we suggest might best be bridged through faculty and student affairs partnerships.
