The Art and Science of Holistic Advising
Your advising team should be able to spend their time interpreting information and applying their expertise to help students instead of wrangling data or managing tasks. Rapport is difficult to build when you’re stuck moving to and from multiple systems to glean insights or to take action. Equip them with data-informed opportunities and tools to proactively manage changing student needs and free up space for creative problem solving with more students.
“Advisors are now able to focus on the most high–impact opportunities to improve student persistence, satisfaction, and success, as well as proactively manage their outreach and advising efforts throughout the term.”
