Academic Advising Awards
These awards recognize and encourage quality advising of LAS undergraduates. The award recipients are selected by the LAS Council, the student service organization of the College, and forwards recommendations to the Dean of the College. The LAS Council surveys students about their academic advisors. The Council then contacts Departments with highly rated advisors and asks that they send in a nomination package. The Department may, at its own discretion, nominate an advisor for this award as well.
One award in each of the two categories may be given each year: (1) Advisors of small departments who advise less than 100 students, and (2) Advisors of large departments who advise more than 100 students. Departments are encouraged to submit one nomination.
Recipients receive a $1000 award, a $1000 salary increment and a commemorative plaque at the LAS Recognition of Teaching Excellence.
The eligibility requirements for this award and the Campus Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Advising are one and the same. Further, a faculty member or academic professional who receives a LAS College Award will not be eligible for a second College award during the next ten-year period, although such a person may be nominated again through this process for the Campus Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Advising during that ten-year period, if she/he remains eligible for that award. Graduate Assistant advisors are not eligible for this award.
1. Sustained excellence in undergraduate advising.
2. Major impact on undergraduate students and their intellectual development through sustained academic advising relationships.
The nomination criteria and procedures for this award and the Campus Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Advising are one and the same. The criteria and procedures are included in the Provost's Guidelines on Awards for Excellence in Instruction, Advising, and Research. In addition to the campus procedures, all materials must be typed in 12 point, Times New Roman font, single-spaced.
The original nomination packet should be sent to the LAS AWARDS COMMITTEE, c/o Amy Elli, 2090 Lincoln Hall MC-448. In addition, an electronic copy should be emailed to email@example.com. The LAS Council will forward their selection for the LAS Award to the Dean. The Awards Committee will rank all college advising award nominations for the Dean to approve forwarding for the campus award Excellence in Undergraduate Advising.
