Advising Awards

The Dalhousie University Awards for Outstanding Academic Advisors were created by the President to recognize exceptional academic advisors and encourage efforts to promote, support and improve academic advising at Dalhousie University. The awards are presented annually to faculty or staff demonstrating outstanding service to students as academic advisors. You may nominate any faculty or staff member currently serving, or who has recently served, as an academic advisor.

The Awards are co-sponsored by the Office of the Vice Provost, Student Affairs and the Office of the Provost and Vice President, Academic.
