Position Summary
The Associate Dean for Academic Advising is a newly created
position at Fordham. The incumbent will have the unique opportunity
to lead a major restructuring in undergraduate academic advising in
Fordham's two liberal arts colleges.


After considerable study and consultation, the Deans of Fordham
College at Lincoln Center (FCLC) and Fordham College at Rose Hill
(FCRH) are implementing a new model for advising for undergraduates
in our colleges: a unified professional advising center led by a
single Associate Dean for Academic Advising with physical offices
on each campus, each overseen by Assistant Deans and staffed with
professional advisors who will support and advise students
throughout their undergraduate career in close contact with
departments, programs, and other areas at Fordham.


In its ideal state, the Center will be structured internally
into two sections: one serving the unique needs of first-year,
sophomore, and transfer students (each advisor in this section will
have a caseload of about 200+ students); the other meeting the very
different needs of juniors and seniors (each advisor in this
section will have a caseload of about 300 students).


In the first phase, planned for academic year 2022-2023, a newly
hired cohort of academic advisors will support the academic
transition and progress of all students in the Class of 2026;
subsequent phases will expand advising support to all undergraduate
students in the colleges. The Associate Dean will provide
leadership for the establishment of the center, including
developing core values and mission, and will work closely with the
academic deans on implementation of the new model.
