Regents’ Momentum Year Award for Excellence in Advising and Student Success

This award is tied to the Momentum Year initiative and focuses on excellence in the part of teaching that happens through advising. It is designed to honor academic units rather than individuals.

Official USG Award Guidelines

To help guide our submission, please note that it is not a generic advising award. Rather, it is tied to the Momentum Year initiative, and therefore it recognizes excellence in advising that moves forward the Momentum Year agenda (students completing full-time credit hours, increased success in both math and English in the first year, the percentage of students completing nine (9) credit hours in an Academic Focus Area, etc.)
