Excellence in Academic Advising

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.

Selection Process

Criteria

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:

  • High quality of information and advice: knowledge of graduation requirements including the university curriculum and special program requirements; knowledge of appropriate schedule development and course sequencing; assistance to students as they develop academic, personal and career goals; knowledge of institutional regulations, policies and procedures; ability to engage in developmentally appropriate goals for students.
  • Outstanding support of students: strong interpersonal skills; caring, helpful attitude towards students; willingness to act in the student's best interests; willingness to encourage development of student independence and critically thinking skills; sensitivity to diversity issues; knowledge of campus resources and appropriate referral activity; demonstration of holistic advising principles.
  • Accessibility to students: availability to advisees and frequency of contact; face-to-face and electronic communication; welcoming and responsive to students.

Nomination

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.
