Academic Advisor Evaluation

All undergraduates will be completing the Academic Advisor Evaluation questionnaire at the end of this semester. The questionnaire was devised by the UGBC in collaboration with the University Council on Teaching and was reviewed by the Council of Deans and the Provost’s Advisory Council. Students value this opportunity to comment favorably when their academic advisors have been especially helpful and to highlight areas where advising could be improved.

The questionnaire is short, and the identity of the students will be kept confidential. Faculty may find it helpful to have these questions in mind when planning registration advisement sessions with their advisees.

Once the results are compiled at the end of the semester, advisors will be able to view the responses of the students formally assigned to them as advisees.
