Advising Reform Roadmap Blog Series: Student Engagement (Part 5)

The fifth post in our five-part monthly blog series with EvoLLLution on the Advising Reform Roadmap focuses on student engagement. Specifically, the post aims to weigh in on how institutions can encourage students to best utilize academic advising and other student supports.

Our final post offers some tips and techniques for increasing enhancing student engagement with academic advising, including peer advising, group advising sessions, and design thinking.

The Advising Reform Roadmap, a tool highlighted within our recent report on academic advising, outlines five intervention priorities for institutional leaders as they aim to improve advising at their institution.
