To better understand OSU’s advising caseloads, then Vice Provost and Dean of Undergraduate Studies, Susana Rivera-Mills, initiated a project to explore academic advising capacity across campus.

Additionally, 85 academic advisors completed another survey to provide information about their individual practices and various responsibilities. (Compiled by Alex Aljets & Jeff Malone)
