Academic Advising Syllabus

What is Academic Advising?

Academic Advising is a collaborative teaching and learning process between a student and advisor.

“Academic advising is integral to fulfilling the teaching and learning mission of higher education. Through academic advising, students learn to become members of their higher education community, to think critically about their roles and responsibilities as students, and to prepare to be educated citizens of a democratic society and a global community. Academic advising engages students beyond their own world views, while acknowledging their individual characteristics, values, and motivations as they enter, move through, and exit the institution.” (From NACADA: Global Community of Academic Advising.)

“In addition to understanding advising as a form of teaching and learning, another guiding principle is that advising always starts with a holistic appreciation of the student as a whole person. For that reason, much advising involves a blend of academic and non-academic advice. Academic advising can, however, be distinguished from other allied forms of advising on campus – tutoring and learning support, or career, psychological, financial, disability, or legal counseling, etc. – by the fact that the primary focus of academic advising is on student success as revealed primarily in their academic progression toward identifying, pursuing, and completing their intended academic program and achieving their academic goals.” (From University of Saskatchewan Academic Advising Charter.)
