This award recognizes faculty and/or staff advisors who demonstrate exceptional advising skills and who serve as role models to other advisors. Recipients are selected based on the scores and comments received on class surveys and the nomination form. Awards are $1,000 and may or may not be made each year at the discretion of the selection committee.

Procedures

Students may submit nominations at any time of the year. Nominations must be received by March 31 for awards made in that year. A college committee reviews the nominations along with scores given to faculty and staff advisors in the annual senior survey before making a selection.  The committee may decide to award one or both awards in any given year. Advisors may not win the award two years in a row. The award will be presented at the end of the academic year.
