Book Description

Training advisors is not an easy task. We never seem to have enough time and resources to devote to providing comprehensive, ongoing training to our advising team. As administrators, we are faced with managing multiple priorities related to supervising personnel, executing programs, addressing escalated student issues, and attending to the myriad of administrative functions that come with the job.

Drawing on 25+ years of academic advising experience, Sue Ohrablo’s High-Impact Advising provides a comprehensive, A-Z introduction to the job—with useful tools, exercises, and assessments which can be used in individual and group training sessions for new advisors, as well as ongoing training and reinforcement of practices.
