||Parents of First Year Students: Expectations of Academic Advising
Allison Ewing-Cooper and Kami Merrifield | University of Arizona
While many advisors and college administrators have strong opinions about working with parents, what are parents’ views of academic advising and their own involvement in their students’ academic experiences? The goal of this presentation is to report findings from our study on first-year students’ parents’ views of academic advising. Three hundred thirty parents completed our online survey during New Student Orientation. Parents reported on what they perceive as the responsibilities of academic advisors, how often students should see their advisors, and their own plans for involvement in their students’ education.
