Academic Advising at Bennett College is an on-going, calculated, educational partnership, with a curriculum, instruction, and a set of learning outcomes. At Bennett College academic advising is a relationship between a faculty member and student or staff member and student. Through set meetings the faculty or staff member assist in planning the student’s academic and vocational goals.
During advising, we have the opportunity to exchange information designed to help students reach their educational and career goals. We also believe that advising is a shared responsibility between the advisor and the advisee. The students are responsible for knowing and following the institution’s requirements, determine their own directions and goals, and familiarizing themselves with the college’s current catalog. As an academic advisor, your customer service skills and assistance in explaining the College’s processes and requirements are invaluable in retaining and graduating students from Bennett College.
