The College of Agricultural Sciences Office for Undergraduate Education wants to recognize the vital role academic advisers play in assisting students through their academic careers.

Nominees will be evaluated based on effective advising qualities that distinguish the nominee as an excellent academic adviser.

Dedicated academic advisers support students as they navigate through good times and hard times and ultimately help students chart a path to get to their destination. Deeply committed to the success of all students, these are the people who keep them on track to graduate on time, offer a dose of realism when needed, and provide the overall support students need to realize their greatest ambitions. They are true supporters and champions for Ag Sciences students and are undeniably deserving of recognition every single day.
