Advising Resources


Outstanding Academic Advising Award


The Provost’s Office has established two awards to highlight the importance of academic advising at NDSU by recognizing and rewarding outstanding advising of individual undergraduates by faculty and by professional advisors who are committed to assisting students to reach their full potential.

Nominees must have been employed and advising at NDSU for at least two years. Full time faculty, instructors, and lecturers who actively advise individual undergraduates are eligible for the Outstanding Faculty Advising Award. Professional advisors are eligible for the Outstanding Professional Advisor Award. Individuals who have received the award within the previous five years are ineligible
