Advising and Placement

Academic Affairs/Student Affairs Task Force on Advising and Career Placement

This task force is charged with evaluating the current practices and strategies for academic advising, career placement, and graduate school preparation and recommending action items to increase the effectiveness of these activities. The task force should:

  1. inventory current assets used by the university, the colleges, and departments;
  2. define the responsibilities and roles of the university-level units and those in the colleges responsible for advising and career placement; and
  3. develop best practice recommendations to enhance advising and career placement.

Since no single strategy will provide a definitive method for enhancing advising and career placement, the task force should develop a series of recommendations that will reinforce each other when implemented across the university.
