Awards Program Information

In recognition of the significant role undergraduate advising/mentoring plays in fostering academic excellence at the University of Oregon, the Division of Undergraduate Studies and the All-Campus Advising Association (ACAA) collaborated to launch an undergraduate advising/mentoring awards program to distinguish outstanding faculty and professional advising/mentoring on the University of Oregon campus.

One faculty advisor and one professional advisor will receive a $2000 award each, generously provided by the Division of Undergraduate Studies. The recipients who best exhibit the qualities associated with excellent advising will be recognized at an awards brunch on Thursday, June 1, 2017.

Faculty, students, staff, and officers of administration are welcome to nominate faculty and professional advisors who exemplify excellence in advising and meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • Outstanding Professional Advisor: Any professional whose job dictates that the majority of his/her responsibilities are in undergraduate advising.
  • Outstanding Faculty Advisor: Any appointed tenure track, non-tenure track, or adjunct faculty member who mentors or advises undergraduate students in addition to significant teaching and research responsibilities.

      If you have questions about which category you fall into, please contact

The nominee will be notified and asked to submit an application consisting of an advising/mentoring philosophy statement and letter of recommendation.

Nominations are due Friday, March 17th, 2017.
