The Development of an Intrusive Learning Partnership Model Advising Program for Students in Academic Jeopardy in the College of Community & Public Service at Grand Valley State University

It has been suggested that students may benefit from an intrusive learning partnership approach to academic advising. This project examines the role of the academic advising, the Learning Partnership Model and intrusive academic advising as well as the literature of their benefits. It also explores what a mandatory intrusive, Learning Partnership Model approach, to an academic advising program for students in academic jeopardy would look like at Grand Valley State University in the College of Community & Public Service. A manual was created for the program using key ideas from the Learning Partnership Model and the guidelines for an intrusive approach to academic Advising.
