Nominations sought for 2007 Academic Advising Awards

The Temple community is invited to nominate professional advisors, advising administrators and faculty advisors for the 2007 Academic Advising Awards, which recognize the major contribution of advisors and advising units to the Temple community. The universitywide nominating process opened on Feb. 14. 

Nominations, due by March 9, can be submitted by writing to AcademicAdvisingAwards@temple.edu. Self-nominations are accepted.  Nominees should be selected based on their contribution to the advising process, their personal help to advisees, their enhancement of advising skills and their understanding of advising in the context of Temple’s policies. In the nomination, please include the following information: the nominee’s name; Temple e-mail address; campus mailing address; campus phone number; school, college or department; and title. 

Only advisors who work with undergraduates are eligible.

Following the three-week nomination period, nominees will be asked to develop a packet consisting of a professional statement and recommendations.  A university selection committee will choose one awardee in each category (professional advisor, faculty advisor, and academic advising administrator) to receive a plaque, a cash award and professional development funds during the coming academic year.  Awards will be presented at the Advisor Appreciation Luncheon on May 3.

The Academic Advising Awards are sponsored by the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Studies.
