Creating New Possibilities for Students Through Data-Informed Advising Practices: Lessons from the NSSE Advising Topical Modu

Date: Wednesday April 26

Presenters: Jim Cole, BCCSE Project Manager; Jillian Kinzie, NSSE Interim Co-Director;  Kriti Gopal, NSSE Institute Project Associate; and Bridgette Holmes, NSSE Institute Project Associate

Good academic advising is central to student success. Yet, students’ advising experiences can be uneven and advising tends to be one of the more under-supported campus services. This may be why only about half of students responding to NSSE describe the quality of the advising they receive as very good or excellent. This webinar offers an opportunity to consider the most recent results about first-year students’ academic advising experience from NSSE 2022 and the Academic Advising Topical Module. We will highlight salient results across three institutional types – doctoral, masters and liberal arts – and discuss the dimensions of advising practice that deserve attention as institutions across the country invest in improving academic advising to provide holistic support.
