Advisor of the Year Award

Each year the Office of Student Activities and Services asks student organizations to nominate their advisor for the Advisor of the Year Award. An advisor’s commitment to an organization is usually above and beyond his or her job responsibilities to the University.  As such, we wish to honor individuals who not only dedicate themselves, but also surpass the requirements of those student organizations they serve.

Look for an oportunity to nominate your advisor each fall or contact our office for more information.
