Definition of Developmental Advising

Developmental Advising is a student-centered approach toward developing a relationship among students, faculty and other college professionals. This alliance develops through mutual trust, shared responsibilities, and commitment to helping students identify, clarify, and realize their personal, academic, career, and life goals. Developmental Advising is an ongoing growth process which assists students in the exploration, clarification, communication, and implementation of realistic choices based on self-awareness of abilities, interests, and values.
