Excellence in Advising & Student Services Awards Program
This year, we are combining Celebrating Our Collective Efforts with our awards program for advising and student services staff. This virtual event in December will be an opportunity to come together to acknowledge and celebrate the positive impacts of our profession, the necessity of our work, and our perseverance in spite of great odds during these times. Once again, this has been a challenging year, full of uncertainties. Over and over, we have created options and contingencies to prepare for situations we cannot predict.
Our advising and student services community has shown great empathy and insistence on whole personhood while navigating the pandemic, the uprisings in response to anti-Black police violence, and the general intensity of our world. We know that each of you is doing the best you can to support our students and each other during a very stressful situation that includes almost daily challenges to our mental, spiritual and physical well-being.
You are warmly invited to join us in recognizing our 2020 and 2021 award recipients and Celebrating Our Collective Efforts on Wednesday, December 15, from 1:30-3:00 p.m. PST via Zoom. We look forward to celebrating the entire student services community and your on-going hard work and dedication to supporting students. We also look forward to spending well-deserved time together for some much needed joy, laughter, music, games, and some amazing giveaways/prizes! There will be opportunities to share kudos and gratitude with each other. RSVP by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, December 6 for this event and take a few moments to add your words of gratitude and thanks to individuals and teams within our student services community on this 2021 Kudoboard.
