College of Western Idaho (CWI) has made some exciting changes over the summer with the new Student Advising and Success unit. This innovative team is designed to provide proactive advising in a streamline approach to assist students as they navigate through their academic career.
The team is an amalgamation of Advising and New Student Services, Career and Technical Education Learning Communities, and Career Services.
This new and improved model has been optimized to connect career exploration and holistic student development to academic planning. With this student-centered approach, CWI’s objective is to provide expert advice from those who specialize in the academic disciplines students are pursuing.
Over the summer, Student Success Advisors engaged students in a “Know Your Advisor” campaign. These advisors have been deployed throughout CWI to be closer to students and to provide better accessibility.
The goal of these modifications is to improve student success and retention with stellar advising delivered in an engaging and dynamic model.
