Academic Advisor Forum

The Advisors Forum was developed to offer academic advisors at Cumberland a central location to learn, reference, retrieve and post information regarding the process of advising students at our college. As the academic advising process continues to evolve into a more decentralized process for students, members of the academic divisions, the Deans, Student Development Advisors, our Vice President or Executive Directors may provide additional posts for all to review. This page started as a Strategic Plan Initiative in Goal #6 as a location for training materials to be organized for everyone to see. The direction it may take on is not known at this time. As the Advising Forum page develops we will monitor its usefulness, effectiveness, and relevance to the needs of our professional advising staff. Comments and contributions are not only welcome but encouraged. Thank you for taking the time to visit.

I am rating the comments, not the diagram. If they give us direction to what we collectively observe we can adjustment the schematic. There is no clear consensus for correction yet. The undeclared students do not belong to a division, thus, yes, they are left hanging out there. They are not within an academic unit - much like the Freshman Seminar courses, they belong to Student Service, not a Division. This shows institutional broad-scale organization, sub-units do not seem appropriate here.

Perhaps you want to specifically add: EOF, SSS, Project Assist, and CASS to the line where you have all of the division advisors. Advisement from these areas don't typically take place in the Enrollment/Advisement complex. Why is the Non-Degree box hanging out there in thin air not connected to anything? It should at least be linked to NSO's where these students are commonly found.The diagram needs to be revised to clearly incorporate all aspects of advisement.

I think this is a fair representation of the process. Next step would be to briefly describe each piece of the process.

As a schematic it has it advantages but also clearly shows a weakness. This is particularly true for non-declared majors who, in your schematic, just sort of sits out there with no linkage to the advisement process. It is also not clear from the diagram where SSS and EOF fall within the total picture since the two programs combined serve a significant number of students. Perhaps my understanding of the chart is not clear but what is the purpose of the chart and whose the audience?
