Advisor Forum presents February Charlie Award

Submitted by Katelin A. Christianer-Donkers

The K-State Advisor Forum announces that Bradley Kramer, professor and department head of industrial and manufacturing systems engineering, has been selected for the February Charlie award.

Kramer was nominated by a colleague for this award because "he is working hard to find ways to always improve our department and make it a better place for students to earn their degree."

Kramer is commended for being available to students in all situations.

According to his nominator, "No matter his busy schedule, he always makes time to answer student questions about their degree progress, even if he is not their advisor. He takes the time to sit down with students and listen to their current problems and needs. He has been in the department for over 30 years and has been through it all."

In addition to academic advising, Kramer "also looks out for job opportunities for students and connects students with alumni and employers. He can relate to the students and give them the ins and outs of the career field."

"After students talk with Dr. Kramer, they feel relieved and more confident that they can take on today's issues," which is a testament to his advising.

The K-State Advisor Forum thanks Kramer for the work he has done for students and the advising community and congratulates him on this award.

Once your nomination is complete, it will remain an active nomination for one full academic year. Nominations can be completed at any time and can be submitted by anyone on campus.
