Co-published with NACADA

Advisors are focused on the success of their students. They do the work of advising not for money or fame, but because their meaningful work ensures that students reach their goals. In order to do so, those who serve students must have the knowledge, skills, abilities, and encouragement to do their work. This edited collection provides a practical framework for advisor training and professional development, underpinned by the theoretical rationale for those frameworks. This text is not focused on the “what” of advisor training but is instead intentionally focused on the “how” and the “why,” encouraging those responsible for development and implementation to have a clear means by which to support advisor success. Readers of this text will identify the centrality of the NACADA Core Values and Core Competencies to effective training and development but will also gain a practical suite of tools to be used in various higher educational contexts. Including, but not limited to initial program creation, the authors consider complex concerns such as funding, technology, intercultural competence, and self-care--among others--as components of a comprehensive program to support advising professionals.

"Comprehensive Advisor Training and Development, Third Edition is a must have for those who are dedicated to the academic advising profession. From establishing a culture for training and development, to funding implications, the use of technology, and assessment, this book helps guide those who recognize the critical needs of professionals who are dedicated to improving academic advising practices and student success. In exploring different theoretical frameworks and delivery systems it becomes clear that there are several approaches professionals can use to support their training and development. However, this third edition provides pathways for how to use evidence-based practices to achieve proven results to best support students. Professional development must become embedded in our culture to support the changing needs of our students, institutions, and higher education. I wholeheartedly recommend this book for senior-level administrators, directors, primary role advisors, and faculty advisors."

Melinda J. Anderson, EdD - NACADA, Executive Director

"The first edition of NACADA’s Advisor Training and Development book was groundbreaking and established the importance of professional development in supporting and improving academic advising practice. This new edition is a timely update to the first, capturing and addressing the complex issues facing the field in an ever-changing and global higher education environment. The beginning chapters trace history and distinguish training as related to skills and knowledge from development as related to continuous growth and support. The chapters on practice offer perspectives on myriad approaches to professional development and provide guidance to those responsible for implementing advisor training and development programs. In addition, one of the most exciting chapters in this new edition is the one on assessment. This chapter makes assessment accessible to those beginning their assessment journeys as well as those who are refining their assessment plans. Without a doubt, this new edition is a must-have and value-added addition to an academic advisor’s library."

Susan M. Campbell, Ed.D. - Chief Student Affairs Officer, emerita, University of Southern Maine
