College of Letters & Science 2020-21 Advising Awards
Advising is critical to student success. These annual advising awards acknowledge the importance of undergraduate and graduate advisors; they allow the College to recognize and reward the exemplary work of faculty and academic staff involved in providing this vital service to our students.
There are various types of advisors in the College of Letters & Science. Academic Staff departmental advisors generally advise students interested in specific academic majors and certificates and often on degree requirements. Other professional Academic Staff advisors are often more generalist advisors or career advisors. They may, for example, work with students who have not declared their major or advise students regarding potential career paths. Such advisors may be found in in the Center for Academic Excellence, the L&S Honors Program, L&S Academic Advising Services, SuccessWorks, and in the various student support programs in the College of Letters & Science. Faculty departmental advisors may do much the same but may also advise graduate students, guiding them in their academic experience in a discipline.
Two L&S Advising Awards will be awarded each of which includes a monetary award of $3,500. Evaluation criteria and the nomination process including the application cover document can be found with the links below.
Any questions can be directed to L&S Assistant Dean Nathan Phelps at (608) 263-6504 or.
