Description

What qualities do students value most in an academic advisor? How do alumni perceptions of advisors change over time? Findings from a mixed-methods 25-item survey of alumni provided answers. Both quantitative and qualitative survey responses were coded using the five constructs identified in Paul, Smith & Dochney’s 2012 Servant Leadership model. Participants consistently scored their selected advisor higher on the constructs Altruistic Calling, Holistic Support and Wisdom than the constructs of Organizational Stewardship and Persuasive Mapping. There was no significant difference between responses over the six seven-year periods compared. Findings corroborated a previous study showing Wisdom to be foundational.
