Advising is an integral part of helping students maximize their academic success. Faculty are often asked to advise students in their departments with little training or guidance. Even seasoned advisors are not experts in all of the changing policies and support services that relate to student success. The Graduation Initiative launched a year-long discussion with the campus community to better understand the status of advising at Cal Poly Pomona. The discussions resulted in recommendations to improve this important service. As a continuation of the campus-wide discussion, the design and implementation of advising models for the campus and colleges will be addressed. Input and approval among faculty, staff advisors, and student representatives will be sought.
To participate in the discussions and design and implementation processes, contact Claudia Pinter-Lucke at firstname.lastname@example.org or 909-869-3328.
