CEMB to Present New Advising Center Model at Conference

The success of Curb College Advising Center, a new model of academic advising, will be the topic of a presentation given by Tina Dishman (Advising Center Director), Carolyn Burress (Advising Center Administrative Coordinator) and Dean Wesley Bulla at the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA) Region 3 conference in Charleston, W.Va. on May 18-20. Before the new model was instituted, CEMB’s 16 faculty advisors could not schedule the college’s 1,400 students in the traditional academic advising model of a week and a half. In the Advising Center, faculty spend two hours every week advising students in addition to scheduled appointments during regular academic advising. This new year-round advising model has resulted in a student satisfaction rate of nearly 100 percent.
