Resolution on effective advising:
Whereas the faculty are deeply concerned about recent events, both as events in and of themselves and as indications of how we are functioning as an educational community.
Whereas a critical part of the undergraduate experience is academic advising and the most effective advising takes place in face to face meetings at least once a semester.
Whereas recent changes have resulted in faculty advisors not having mechanisms to compel advisees to visit them before preenrolling and before making other changes to their schedules (such as taking overhours).
Be it resolved that: The senate ask the vice provost for undergraduate education working together with the university registrar and the associate deans for undergraduate education of each college to establish shared advising expectations and mechanisms to support effective faculty advising including face to face meetings.
