  1. Please read the advising training results prior to our next Title III meeting and bring your thoughts and suggestions for directions for future training based on our findings.

    To attempt to synthesize the findings, I think the faculty see our greatest strength in advising as relational. We know our students well, we take time with them, and we treasure each student.

    While there is some incongruity about the number of faculty that feel they need training on other programs, many faculty indicated a desire for others to understand more about their programs. Hmmm… food for thought here. Specific programs mentioned that faculty wanted to understand better are: martec, college transfer, health sciences programs (especially entrance requirements), aquaculture, business technology, and TRIO. Several faculty indicated training on all programs would be helpful.

    The area in most need of improvement in advising according to the faculty seems to be related to preparation and student success. Many faculty felt that some people advising are not following prerequisites and are not explaining all it takes to complete a program successfully. Students skipping developmental coursework or not meeting prerequisites for courses undermines their success and ultimately retention.

    I look forward to discussing our findings in our next meeting. Heather
