Academic Advising

Research and Benchmarking

“College impact research has continually demonstrated a positive relationship between student-faculty interaction and a broad range of student educational outcomes, including academic achievement, educational aspirations, intellectual growth, and academic satisfaction.”  (Kim and Sax, 2009)

What the Research Says 

The Education Advisory Board (EAB) has published research briefs on the impact Faculty Engagement with Undergraduate Students has on retention and persistence:

EAB has also evaluated the role of Faculty as Academic Advisors and how the literature assesses the level of support Faculty provide to Undergraduate Students. EAB has also provided six ways that "faculty can help students navigate their academic careers" and a faculty toolkit that may prepare faculty advisors and mentors for using the EAB Navigate platform.
