Faculty advisors in a college of agriculture and home economics were surveyed to determine their perceptions about support for academic advising in the college. They rated the level of importance of selected advising support functions and their level of satisfaction with support they received for those advising functions. The most critical advising need, based on the difference between the level of importance and level of satisfaction, was to recognize advisors' efforts related to academic advising. Priority approaches for helping faculty with their advising were: development of an advising handbook, release time from committee assignments, and training workshops covering topics such as updates on rules and regulations, student referrals and career development.
