Academic Advising: Are Institutions Accurately Utilizing Data to Determine Efficacy?

Academic advising has been an important part of student success and is one of the main reasons campuses are improving two-year graduation rates for transfer students, and four-year graduation rates for first-time freshman. Various advising theories should be measured and analyzed in the program review and assessment process for academic programs.
