Nominations are now open for the UO Excellence in Undergraduate Advising Awards, given annually to a faculty advisor and a professional advisor who have made a positive difference in the student experience.

A committee comprised of faculty members, professional advisors and university administrators will review applications. Two awards will be given:

●   Outstanding professional advisor: any professional whose job dictates that the majority of his or her responsibilities are in undergraduate advising.

●    Outstanding faculty advisor: any appointed tenure-track, nontenure-track or pro tem faculty member who mentors or advises undergraduate students in addition to holding significant teaching and research responsibilities.

Each recipient gets a $2,000 award and will be recognized at an awards ceremony on  June 1. The Division of Undergraduate Studies and the All-Campus Advising Association sponsor the annual UO Excellence in Undergraduate Advising Awards.
