Outstanding Adviser Award poster 2016-01-08 copy“The Outstanding Adviser Award is for those advisers who have gone above and beyond to help empower their students,” said Dr. Kristen Keith, UT associate professor and undergraduate adviser in the Department of Economics, who is chair of the Outstanding Adviser Award Selection Committee. “We are looking for nominations from students because they are the ones who work with advisers most and whose academic lives are affected the most by outstanding advisers. Alumni, faculty and staff are also encouraged to submit a nomination.”

The online nomination form is at http://utole.do/adviseraward.

Past recipients of the award are not eligible; a list of winners is online with the nomination form.

The Outstanding Adviser Award will be selected by the committee after those nominated submit their philosophy statements to show how they advise their students.

“There will be two recipients of the Outstanding Adviser Award, each receiving $1,500,” Keith, who won the award in 2013, said. “The philosophy statements are important; they demonstrate the objectives an adviser has when working with students and what academic advising means to them.”

The Outstanding Adviser Award was developed in 1986 for advisers who effectively demonstrate interpersonal skills, educate and empower students to make informed academic decisions, prioritize their commitments to maximize academic success, and who are knowledgeable of UT policies and resources.

Winners will be recognized at the UT Outstanding Awards Reception Monday, April 11, at 5:30 p.m. in the Radisson Grand Ballroom on Health Science Campus.
