Description

Academic advising is a key factor in retention. The charge to develop rapport and an understanding of the student’s work-life balance in one session (15-20 minutes) can be daunting, especially when student faces academic failure, inability to progress or a loss of status and identity relative to a major. A solutionfocused approach may be of benefit. It is a way of having a conversation that emphasizes strengths, what is going well and provides an opportunity to visualize a positive outcome.
