We often hear reports about the quality of academic advising, but what is effective advising? Is it the mere recommendation of classes based on a catalog or a checklist (prescriptive academic advising), or is it related to advancing students’ critical thinking skills and maturation as a continuation of teaching (developmental academic advising)? We know, if performed effectively, that advising assists in both retention and future recruiting.
