A Message from the Director of Academic Advising
Perhaps, the greatest attraction on the Beulah Heights University campus is culture diversity. As we successfully serve more than 45 nationalities throughout the continents of Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, and South America, we remain confident that the world is our outreach field.
Diversity coupled with technological advances has propelled growth, change, and instinctive energies that integratively produce new perspectives and promote concerted efforts towards student development. The evolution of satellite to distance to media platform learning awarded a breakthrough for the nontraditional student by opening new doors that not only attract the geographically challenged student, but gives way to new opportunities and advantages for all students, whom we appreciate as being the lifeblood of our institution. According to the U.S. Department of Education:
Before the turn of the 20th century, colleges and universities were primarily populated by young, White male students, many of whom transitioned directly from high school, were enrolled full time, were dependent on others to provide financial support, and were not permanently employed (U.S. Department of Education, 2002). Others report that in addition to a burgeoning growth in diversity, post-secondary institutions have experienced a steady growth in the number of students with extended gaps between high school and college (Bean & Metzner, 1985; Donaldson & Graham, 1999; Merriam & Caffarella, 1991; Remedios & Richardson, 2013).
Although to a great extent, cultural diversity and the close of geographical gaps are factors that promote change and developmental processes, even more so are the expanding career paths that attract the emerging generation. As efforts meet growth challenges and change, our allegiance to our students and helping them succeed is at the core of our overall purpose for offering students a full-service center for Academic Advising. We believe that the reality of student success is to see a student as an individual apart from status, apart from the population, and as a person pursuing formal education for his or her own life’s purpose. To accomplish this, we have advising professionals waiting to show each student the way to the path that is right for them.
Our advising (RIGHT PATH) center works with the Academic Affairs Committee. We value collaboration for the strength it delivers in undergirding our commitment to hold true to promoting the success of our students. With students being our #1 priority, our RIGHT PATH Specialists welcome opportunities to help students get on the right path and stay the course. We are confident that starting right sets the course for a lifetime of success.
We invite our students and prospective students to contact us or visit our RIGHT PATH Center and get the care and leadership they deserve.
