College Advising Getting Guidance Itself
September 18, 2013 — The Indiana Commission for Higher Education says Commissioner Teresa Lubbers will host university leaders from across the state to improved college advising.
The Commission says less than a third of Indiana’s four-year college students and only 4% of the state’s community college students graduate on time.
It says evidence shows, “that clear degree maps, proactive advising and a more sensible approach to selecting college courses can empower students to make better decisions, save time and money, and increase their likelihood of earning a degree.”
The Commission is sponsoring the “Guided Pathways to Student Success” summit in Indianapolis tomorrow as Indiana’s first-ever summit about college advising. It says the summit, “will feature national experts, best practices in college advising and the public unveiling of Indiana’s new ’15 to Finish’ campaign, an initiative designed to encourage Hoosier college students to complete at least 15 credit hours each semester in order to graduate on time. “
