On the 2011 CCSSE (Community College Survey of Student Engagement) 91% of our full-time facultyÂ referred students to academic advising/planning services sometimes or often, compared to 85% ofÂ the entire CCSSE cohort. Seventy-four percent of our part-time faculty referred students to academicÂ advising/planning services sometimes or often, compared to 71% of the entire cohort.
Of the entire faculty that responded to the question, â€œDuring the current year, is academic advising partÂ of your teaching role at this college?â€ 55% of full-time and 7% of part time faculty answered YES! Â When students were asked how often they have talked about career plans with an instructor or advisor,Â 66% stated they spoke sometimes or often or very often.
Remember, like the IRS tax deadline, advising for summer and fall is only about 6 weeks away!
