Faculty and staff members across campus contribute to this mission and help first-year students find academic and personal success. To recognize these faculty and staff, the Outstanding First Year Student Advocate and Advising Excellence awards will be presented annually to the winning nominees.
Nominations will open February 4 and are due February 28, and can be submitted by staff and faculty.
Outstanding First-Year Student Advocate Award
The Outstanding First-Year Student Advocate Award recognizes and celebrates the efforts and significant contributions of UNCG faculty and staff who provide leadership in creating a positive transition to college and a successful learning environment for first-year students. The Award selection committee will begin their review of all nominations in February, and award recipients are announced at the end of the Spring term.
Advising Excellence Awards
The UNCG Advising Excellence awards recognize the commitments of faculty and staff who make significant contributions to student success through the delivery of exemplary academic advising.
Two UNCG Advising Excellence Awards are presented each spring term, honoring a faculty advisor and a professional academic advisor. Both awards and the selection criteria have been modeled to reflect the regional and national advising awards established by the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA).
