Academic Advising

Page address:



The Academic Advising Task Force is charged with articulating expectations for University-wide academic advising that fosters the intentional development of all our students, undergraduate and graduate. The Task Force will identify high potential strategic directions and goals to advance academic advising that supports student success and timely degree completion at Minnesota State Mankato for the period 2015-2018.
        As a part of this charge, the task force will address:
·         What would a new level of greatness in Academic Advising look like by 2018, and how will we know if it is achieved?
o    Definition of key terms
o    Identification of strategic directions and goals
o    Benchmarks that are linked to the strategic priorities and performance measures of the University and Minnesota State Colleges and Universities System.
·         What would be a model organizational structure and function; polices, procedures, and practices to support the strategic directions and goals?
o    Delivery chain
o    Policies, procedures, and practices
o    Resources and sustainability
The task force will provide a report to the Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs prior to the end of the 2014 Fall semester.
