Student access and success are paramount to ensuring our nation has an educated populous into the future. A part of that continuum begins with academic advising. This book is a must read for everyone who is involved in assisting students in deigning their journey through the higher education system. Many of the concepts presented in O'Banion's 17th book have proven successful over years of application and have served as a clear process for advisors to follow. By following the steps outlined in this book, students will save both time and money by not enrolling in courses for which they are not ready, or which are not a necessary part of their chosen curriculum. KUDOS to Terry O'Banion for sharing this well-developed process for ensuring student success. -- Belle Wheelan, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools' Commission on Colleges
Academic Advising in the Community College is a must read for leaders looking to reimagine, reengineer, or reinvigorate the systems and processes aimed at welcoming and guiding students on their paths through community colleges. Moreover, for advisors, this book is a grounding in historical anchors and modern imperatives surrounding their roles. O'Banion and his contributing authors do a masterful job of honoring the past even as they challenge us all to look to the future using solid research, compelling frameworks, and concrete case studies exploring student engagement, guided pathways, and more. Take the time to dive in and soak in the goodness. More important, use this book to engage your college community about how they can embrace advising as core to student success innovation. -- Mark David Milliron, Co-Founder & Chief Learning Officer, Civitas Learning &Faculty in Residence, College of Education, The University of Texas at Austin
