Call for Nominations: Academic Advising Award

Feb. 6, 2020

Academic Advising Award Nominations Opened

The Global Advising Council in coordination with the Academic Advising Center will accept nominations for the third annual Academic Advising Awards from now until Mar. 15.

Excellent advisors are caring and helpful, knowledgeable about curriculum and academic policies, and actively engaged in fostering the academic and career goals of their advisees.

By calling attention to the best work in this area, this award recognizes the high-impact practices that contribute to the “global student-centered experience” we provide. These awards recognize faculty and staff advisors who demonstrate advising at its finest.

The Office of Academic Affairs, Academic Advising Center and Global Advising Council annually recognize and honors excellence in academic advising across Webster University.  

2 awards will be presented annually in the following categories: 

  1. Outstanding Faculty Advisor
  2.  Outstanding Staff Advisor

Outstanding Faculty Advisor Award

The Outstanding Faculty Advisor Award honors the contribution to student success, retention, and persistence that Faculty Advisors make.  They are ideally situated to explain and integrate the learning outcomes of the curriculum they helped design.  They can also play a unique role in helping students see how to use their degrees professionally and academically. 

This award is for full-time individuals whose primary responsibility is classroom teaching and advising.   

Outstanding Staff Advisor Award

The Outstanding Staff Advisor recognizes the contributions professional advisors make to the university, particularly to students. Professional advisors throughout the network play an important role, as the academic advisor may be the one constant throughout a student’s academic journey at Webster University. 

This award is for individuals who have significant advising responsibilities including formally assigned students to advise.
