Feasibility of Implementing Proactive Advising and the Dynamic Student Development Meta-Theory
26 October 2020 // 1:00pm EDT // Cost: $10


Intrusive advising, also known as proactive advising, is comprised of techniques that originate from prescriptive and developmental models, as well as integrated advising models. All of the aforementioned models will be defined and explained with the goal of highlighting how these approaches relate to university retention efforts to promote student persistence towards graduation. This session will illustrate how proactive advising can be implemented within the Dynamic Student Meta-Theory (DSDM) to promote student success and foster student retention as informed by results from a feasibility survey.
