ENVS/ENVD/GEOG Advisor, Dylan West, is honored with the University of Colorado Boulder's Award for Outstanding New Advisor, a recognition given to two staff members each year for going above and beyond in the field of Academic Advising. Undergraduate Staff Advisor for CU Boulder College of Music, Victoria Ibarra, won the award for Outstanding Senior Advisor.
One award is granted to a new advisor at CU who has worked on campus for 1-3 years and the other is granted to a senior advisor who has dedicated more than 3 years to the CU community. Any staff or faculty member is allowed to nominate an advisor and the award is funded through the office of the provost with the Assistant Vice Provost for Advising and Academic Services, Shelly Bacon.
The award was presented at the annual Advisor Day Professional Development Conference hosted by CU's Advising Council, of which Dylan West serves as the ENVD representative.
