Present at the Meeting: Kelly Hatas, Deborah Knutson, Paul Madden,
Mary Ann Malone, Chris O’Connor, Rhoni Rader, Dale Taylor, Bob Trusz,.
The team agreed that our next meeting date would be on Friday,
January 20th at 11:00. Chris will reserve a conference room and
e-mail the location to the rest of the team.
Dale agreed to collect some of the more easily accessible existing
information on the current status of advising for distribution at
our next meeting.
Bob agreed to bring a list of peer institutions that has been used
for various purposes in the past.
Prior to the next meeting, we will all read the university’s current
advising policy, review the charge to the team, and study the
Action Project Details distributed at the Kickoff of AQIP Action
Projects. The Noel-Levitz report should be available on the web
sometime during the week of January 9th; team members should begin
familiarizing themselves with its content.
Concerns were expressed regarding various topics including the
advising of undecided students, students seeking to be accepted into
selective programs, and at risk students; the very large number of
advisees assigned to some advisors; advisors’ readiness to answer
students’ questions; and the impact of our transition to semesters
on student advising.
At our next meeting we will review and discuss the charge to the
team and the implementation of the timeline attached to the charge
to the team.
