Academic Advising Committee


The SOCHE Academic Advising Committee will provide direct support to students in the academic advising space, with opportunities to share best practices, network, and collaborate on future initiatives. The group will:

  • Champion professional advising as essential to student development and retention at colleges and universities
  • Work with state and local governments to dismantle systemic barriers and create greater equity and justice for at-risk student populations
  • Represent the personal and occupational needs of education professionals, to develop and retain talent and promote wellbeing.

This group is a subset of the Retention and Completion Committee.

Scheduled Meetings

The SOCHE Academic Advising Committee meets in a virtual environment approximately twice per year, with other meetings as requested. Contact Mindy Claggett by email at mindy.claggett@soche.org for all upcoming meeting dates and to join this committee.

Councils & Committees

SOCHE is dedicated to advancing higher education through active collaboration, resource and knowledge building, and effective professional development programs. To accomplish this, SOCHE administers 16 active Councils and Committees. The purpose of a SOCHE Council or Committee is to provide an opportunity for representatives from higher education to be a resource for one another, share information and best practices, identify common challenges, and, ultimately, broaden awareness of the resources, services, and activities in higher education. SOCHE is also dependent upon the Councils and Committees for substantial input on annual professional development programs.
