University College seeks nominations for the campus-wide 2019-2020 Chapman Clapp Outstanding Advisor Award.  

The annual award recognizes outstanding staff and faculty advisors with a plaque and a stipend to support professional development. 

University College celebrates the important work of faculty and staff across campus whose strong advising makes a positive impact on students’ academic careers. Through shared responsibility and engagement, strong student-advisor relationships ensure academic success. 

The Chapman/Clapp Outstanding Advisor Award was created in honor of Laura Chapman, former University College assistant dean for student services, and Lora Clapp, former University College assistant dean for first-year programs. Retired Dean David Descutner established the endowed, university-wide award to celebrate Chapman and Clapp's 50 collective years of caring, student-centered advising. 

Faculty and staff may nominate colleagues for the Outstanding Advisor Award using the nomination form. The link is also available on the UAAC website. Students can also nominate an advisor by submitting a nomination form.  

Nominations must be received by 5 p.m. Friday, May 15. 

Awards will be presented at the University Academic Advising Council Fall Meeting in October.
