The Provost's Excellence in Academic Advising Award recognizes faculty and staff members who spend a significant portion of their time providing exemplary direct delivery of academic advising services to undergraduate students.
Nominees for this award must be a current member of Miami's faculty, classified/unclassified staff, or administration. Nominees should also have a significant record of direct delivery of academic advising services to undergraduates and meet the following criteria:
All faculty and staff who have responsibilities for student academic advising are eligible for nomination. Consideration for this award requires two letters of nomination. Nomination letters should provide detailed evidence of effective advising qualities and practices that distinguish the nominee as an outstanding adviser.
The Undergraduate Academic Advising Council reviews the nominations and makes recommendations to the Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs, who makes the final selection.
The call for nominations for the Provost Award for Excellence in Academic Advising is issued every year. The award will be given to one to three recipients, typically to one faculty recipient, one experienced staff recipient, and one faculty or staff member who has been advising for less than three years but demonstrates unusual promise as an advisor of undergraduate students.
