“Training advisors is not an easy task. We never seem to have enough time and resources to devote to providing comprehensive, ongoing training to our advising team. As advising administrators, we are faced with managing multiple priorities related to supervising personnel, executing programs, addressing escalated student issues, and attending to the myriad of administrative functions that come with the job.”
