The Advising Success Network, in collaboration with StrategyForward Advisors, is excited to share our newest resource:
The Evidence Base for Holistic Advising Redesign: Research to support Black, Latinx/a/o, Indigenous, Asian, and Pacific Islander Students, and Poverty-Affected Students
We believe that all institutions should provide a more holistic student experience and address historical inequities for Black, Latinx/a/o, Indigenous, Asian, and Pacific Islander students, and poverty-affected students. There is also evidence that holistic advising and differentiated student support services are essential to students’ progress in college and associated with higher rates of retention and graduation. However, much of the current research draws from predominantly white institutions (PWI) or may not delve deeply into the institutional contexts of diverse institutions and student populations. To address this, we sought to identify emerging practices for serving our priority populations as well as the context of the institutions serving them. This research brief draws on materials created by ASN partner organizations and on HBCUs, MSIs, HSIs, Tribal Colleges, and Native-serving institutions.
This evidence base research brief includes a bibliography and recommendations that we hope can support your ongoing work.
