Outstanding Advisor Awards

The prestigious Outstanding Advisor Awards are awarded annually to faculty and staff advisors who have demonstrated qualities associated with outstanding academic advising of students. Award recipients will be selected by the Interim Provost and Vice President for Student Affairs and receive $1,000 of professional development funding. The award ceremony is held in May every year.

Comments from past recipients:

"Being nominated as outstanding advisor was a great honor to me. Students MAKE my job meaningful and so, when they nominated me for the award, it was VERY special to me!!  It's a pleasure for me to be able to help and guide them in any way I can." - Dr. Tamyra Pierce, Department of Mass Communication

"Being a mentor is hard work and often you feel insecure in your abilities. When my students nominated me for this award, I knew that my hard work was not only appreciated but, more importantly, making an impact." - Dr. Shane Moreman, Department of Communication

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2015-2016 Outstanding Advisor Awards.  The deadline for submitting nominations is Wednesday, March 30, 2016, by 5 p.m. Links to nomination forms below:
