9781118100929: Academic Advising Approaches: Strategies That Teach Students to Make the Most of College

Strong academic advising has been found to be a key contributor to student persistence (Center for Public Education, 2012), and many are expected to play an advising role, including academic, career, and faculty advisors; counselors; tutors; and student affairs staff. Yet there is little training on how to do so. Various advising strategies exist, each of which has its own proponents.

To serve increasingly complex higher education institutions around the world and their diverse student cohorts, academic advisors must understand multiple advising approaches and adroitly adapt them to their own student populations. Academic Advising Approaches outlines a wide variety of proven advising practices and strategies that help students master the necessary skills to achieve their academic and career goals. This book embeds theoretical bases within practical explanations and examples advisors can use in answering fundamental questions such as:

  • What will make me a more effective advisor?
  • What can I do to enhance student success?
  • What conversations do I need to initiate with my colleagues to improve my unit, campus, and profession?

Linking theory with practice, Academic Advising Approaches provides an accessible reference useful to all who serve in an advising role. Based upon accepted theories within the social sciences and humanities, the approaches covered include those incorporating developmental, learning-centered, appreciative, proactive, strengths-based, Socratic, and hermeneutic advising as well as those featuring advising as teaching, motivational interviewing, self-authorship, and advising as coaching. All advocate relationship-building as a means to encourage students to take charge of their own academic, personal, and professional progress.

This book serves as the practice-based companion to Academic Advising: A Comprehensive Handbook, also from NACADA. Whereas the handbook addresses the concepts advisors and advising administrators need to know in order to build a success advising program, Academic Advising Approaches explains the delivery strategies successful advisors can use to help students make the most of their college experience.

Praise for Academic Advising Approaches

"As higher education increasingly focuses on student success, the impact exerted by academic advising on graduation is increasingly recognized and valued. This text firmly places academic advising in the teaching and learning paradigm as it features theoretical approaches and strategies for use as academic advising gains an integral role on campus."

Charlie Nutt, Executive Director, NACADA: The Global Community for Academic Advising

"Good advising is a critical part of all students' college experiences. Specific suggestions make this book a wonderfully valuable addition to the advising literature and should appeal to advisors as well as advisees and their families."

Richard J. Light, Carl H. Pforzheimer Professor of Teaching and Learning, Harvard University

"Finally a single resource incorporates a wide range of theoretical and practical perspectives to undergird and inspire targeted approaches by academic advisors. The ideas and practical applications should be incorporated into academic advisors' contacts with students and in the syllabus of every advisor training program."

Virginia N. Gordon, Associate Professor Emeritus, The Ohio State University

About the Author:

Jayne K. Drake, Temple University, is past President of NACADA. Peggy Jordan, Oklahoma City Community College, is past Chair of NACADA's Publications Advisory Board and Two-Year Colleges Commission. Marsha A. Miller is NACADA's Assistant Director for Resources and Services.
