Topic: Actionable Data: Academic Advising and Meaning in Undergraduate and Graduate Programs
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.
San Jose State University developed the Making It Real project as a participant in WSCUC's Community of Practice initiative. The purpose has been to engage graduate faculty and campus leaders in a sustainable process to ensure the quality and integrity of our graduate degrees. In this presentation we will share our experiences, challenges, and successes.
