Helping each student reach their academic and personal goals.
The Office of Academic Services and Retention works with multiple offices around campus helping students find resolutions to their problems and answering any questions that arise during their college careers. One way we incorporate this is with a method of holistic advising. Holistic advising is described by some as an approach or mindset to supporting students on the path to academic success. This type of advising looks at the whole person, because whatever they are going through in their personal lives can influence their academic success. At Adelphi University, we want to develop the whole person and help our students become more mature and self-aware.
Academic advising gives students the tools needed to create their academic paths, find new interests and succeed.
The professional academic advising staff in the Office of Academic Services and Retention are committed to helping students craft a coherent educational plan that allows students to reach their academic goals and make timely progress toward completing their degree. While upholding the integrity of the University’s academic standards, students are encouraged to take responsibility for their academic choices and decisions in preparation for their careers, for citizenship and for their future lives.
The professional advising staff in the Office of Academic Services and Retention has adopted the following core values:
Academic advisers act in accordance with the values of the profession of advising for the greater good of students, colleagues, and the University community.
Academic advisers act in accordance with ethical and professional practices. Advisers value honesty, transparency, and accountability to the student, the institution and the advising profession.
Academic advisers respect, engage and value a supportive culture for diverse populations through openness, acceptance and equity.
Navigate is a student support platform—designed in partnership with Educational Advisory Board (EAB)—to assist advisers, student service units, and academic leaders in coordinating student success efforts to maximize retention and graduation.
