Senators vote unanimously to reform advising
NDSU student senate unanimously passed a resolution Monday to illustrate their support for the reform of student advising.
The measure came in light of a recent proposal, which is looking to change the way advisors are prepared to mentor students and how accessible those advisors are to NDSU students. The resolution was written by the student government office of academic and student affairs.
Although the resolution doesn’t change things directly, it makes the student voice heard, said Kevin Walsh, executive commissioner of the Academic and Student Affairs. Along with Larry Peterson, director of Accreditation, Assessment and Academic Advising, student government members worked many hours trying to find ways to improve advising and how to make change happen. Walsh said the reform has been worked on for about two years.
