Advising. Upon execution of this agreement, WVU will work with the College to develop strategies to provide College students and graduates timely information about program opportunities and program requirements. Transfer Pathways/Degree Plans will be published and reviewed as needed.
Advising. If all 1.0 FTE faculty on renewable contracts in a program are loaded with at least 34 advisees (and appropriately adjusted number of advisees for faculty with reduced FTE), additional ELU will be given for excessive advising loads. Exceptions may exist and, upon the recommendation by the Director, can be approved by the Provost. Faculty members are responsible for the accuracy of their advisee lists in Banner. On February 15, a report of each faculty member’s advisees shall be generated, and the following ELU will be awarded for the year: Advisees Additional ELU 0-34 0 35-39 0.33 40-44 0.67 45-49 1 50-54 1.33 55-59 1.67 60-64 2 and so on. Each succeeding interval of five advisees would add an additional 0.33 ELU to a faculty member’s load for the year. A faculty member receiving additional ELU loading under this provision will report on the outcome(s) of work performed for the additional loading as part of the Faculty Professional Annual Report (FPAR).
Advising. The advising of students is an essential function of faculty, and student advising is expected as a part of normal teaching load. Faculty assigned to an exceptional volume of student advising (i.e., more than fifty (50) advisees) will receive additional workload credit in an amount determined by the dean, following consultation with the faculty member and program chair.
Advising. 10.4.1 All Faculty members are responsible for giving out-of-class assistance of a general nature to students on matters such as academic program planning, career issues, and other developmental concerns. Such assistance will be provided by individualized student advising or serving as an advisor to an organized student group, such as a club, Student Government Association or a student cohort (i.e. Class of ’20; Class of ’21, etc.).
Advising. The faculty and college administration acknowledge that student success and retention are enhanced by faculty advising. Effective academic advising includes faculty who guide learners to achieve academic goals. Within the technical programs, a student is assigned an advisor when s/he begins participation in a program. In general education disciplines, the faculty member will advise students in his/her courses. Faculty are expected to guide students to help them succeed academically.
Advising. Academic advising entails advising students about their program of academic study and is an important part of the mission of the University. It includes assisting them in course and program selection, but it does not include supervising academic work, such as independent study, theses, or dissertations. Interest and skill in the general guidance and academic advising of students, however, shall only be a consideration further appointments or reappointments or promotion, if such work was assigned.
Advising. All faculty members are responsible for providing academic advising to students. No faculty member will be assigned more than fifty (50) undergraduate and graduate student advisees as adjusted for the number of undeclared students. Faculty members may by mutual agreement with the Dean agree to be assigned more than fifty (50) advisees. In order to facilitate student advising, each faculty member will announce on the first day of each semester, in accordance with the prescribed number of office hours required and in consultation with the Dean, the specific hours each week he or she will be available for scheduled or drop in appointments.
Advising. Upon execution of this agreement, JCU will work with the College to develop strategies to provide College students and graduates timely information about program opportunities and program requirements. Transfer degree pathways will be reviewed and published annually by each institutions designated transfer pathway designee or appropriate academic department. JCU and the College will each identify a staff member to serve as a contact and to assure continued communication between the two institutions on matters relating to this agreement.
Advising. The College will maintain the advising model consisting of embedded advisors for each division to work specifically with students of the division. The joint Advising Committee, developed by the Administration and CSEA, will meet every semester to evaluate the impact of this model on the advising workload for faculty. The Committee will consist of three (3) tenure-track faculty representing each division appointed by CSEA, and the Administration shall appoint three (3) members to the Committee. If the joint committee finds that the embedded advising model is not adequate to meet the advising needs of students and/or if it does not provide adequate relief to faculty, then the Committee will send its findings and improvement recommendations to the Association/Labor Management Committee for further action.
