Promoting and Establishing an Effective Campus-wide Academic Advising System

Katie E Kerr, University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Abstract

This study explored the role of directors of campus-wide academic advising programs and their contributions to promoting and establishing effective campus-wide academic advising systems. Specifically, directors of campus-wide academic advising addressed how they engaged academic units within a unified campus-wide advising system. This included an exploration of how academic advising organizational structures in higher education institutions and leadership styles of directors of campus-wide advising contributed to the effectiveness of their work. Three themes materialized from this study: (a) emergence of the position of director of campus-wide advising, (b) advising organizational structure and culture, and (c) leadership strategies of directors of campus-wide advising. The results can assist provost offices in gaining more knowledge about the work of directors of campus-wide advising and what resources they need to overcome barriers in their work. The results can also assist directors of campus-wide advising with advocating for advising structures needed to best assist students and academic advisors with relationship building. Recommendations for how to further engage in research around the role of directors of campus-wide advising are provided.^
