Pro-active Academic Advising has contributed to the increase of retention and progression of students at Columbus State University (CSU). The Academic Center for Excellence (ACE) and Preceptorship Advising and Clinical Experience (PACE) advising centers at CSU are leading efforts with regards to pro-active advising. Best practices in pro-active advising by professional staff advisors at CSU includes using technology to pro-actively identify at-risk students and provide timely interventions, five intentional contacts with advisees per semester, participation in the "15 to Finish" initiative, and supporting students holistically. Join representatives from ACE and PACE as they present proven strategies that utilize technology and innovative advising practices that have positively impacted Complete College Georgia (CCG) and transformed the culture of advising at CSU. Discussion will include how you can incorporate these practices at your home institution.
