The Advising Office: More Than Just Good Organization
Throughout this book we have suggested some new ideas for college advisors beyond what has been traditionally considered appropriate. For example, while counselors have always been concerned about and helpful in enhancing student academic performance, we have offered some very specific academic/cognitive
approaches that might seem more like roles that are limited to teachers (e.g., academic information literacy skills). Helping students academically is so critical; we-educators, counselors, and principals-must all become versed in best practices. As we move through the first quarter of the 21st century with all the global changes that are now part of the fabric of life, we must continue to define where we are going as college admissions counselors.
