Theoretical Components of Advising


To be the BEST advisor you can be is to . . .

BELIEVE in your students. Help them realize their potential. If you believe in them and what they can accomplish, maybe they’ll learn to believe in themselves.

EVALUATE your students. Give them positive and constructive feedback. Always let them know where you stand and where they stand.

SUPPORT Provide your students with a supportive environment. Back them 100%. If you support them, they will support you. It makes your job easier, and overall promotes a more positive attitude.

TIME enables you to get to know the students as individuals – not just as students you advise. Share your own experiences and ideas with them. Find out their thoughts and experiences, their likes and dislikes.
