EDSURGE: GOODBYE COLLEGE ADVISING, HELLO COLLEGE COACHING
Traditionally there has been academic advising here, and career advising over there, and financial aid advising over there. We have known for a long time that doesn’t work from a student point of view. As we move to an integrated tech system where an advisor is thinking about a holistic approach, advising isn’t even the right word. It’s a coach.
