Mandatory Academic Advising
Some institutions of higher education require their students to meet with academic advisers to help them navigate the institution’s policies and procedures and increase their chances of academic success. Such mandatory advising can help students stay on track academically and connect with people and opportunities at their college or university, however forced meetings of this kind might also be perceived as overly intrusive for students who are legally regarded as young adults. Such advising might also use more of an advising program’s valuable time than it can easily afford. Do you think academic advising should be required for some or all college students? Is this kind of advising effective?
