Holistic Case Management Advising (HCMA) policy
The Holistic Case Management Advising (HCMA) policy was approved by the Board of Regents in April 2020, resulting in the creation of the Guided Pathways Advising (GPA) program. Guided Pathways Advising is a dynamic student-centered holistic approach grounded in student development and learning. Guided Pathways Advisors align advising practices with the diverse and unique needs of each individual student in their caseload. GPAs advise, advocate, mentor, support, and coach their caseload to reach their individual goals. The GPA program will launch at NCCC during the 2021-2022 academic year and students can expect the following resources:
- All students will be assigned to GPA staff member.
- The GPA staff member will connect with their advisees at beginning of the semester and periodically throughout the semester/year.
- The GPA staff member’s primary goal to support students in developing and reaching their academic/career goal(s).
- The GPA staff member will check-in and provide resources and referrals to promote success.
- The GPA program does not replace faculty advising and students should continue to meet with their faculty advisor.
