Academic Affairs Awards Program

The mission of the Department of Academic Affairs is to provide coordination and academic support for the colleges and schools at The University of Memphis. We also provide support to the provost in the administration of the University's academic programs, administer the broad academic services and programs, and serve as the coordinating arm for instructional units. The department develops and maintains information for decision making, conducts evaluations and assessments, and provides resources for academic improvement. The Department of Academic Affairs also provides efficient and courteous service to prospective and current students in support of their educational goals. We are dedicated to providing the support needed to navigate the day to day operations. Student success is our business, and we are committed to offering services that enhance opportunities for our student body.

The success of Academic Affairs can directly be attributed to the commitment and dedication of its employees. In an effort to recognize this, an awards program has been formed to recognize the hard work and dedication of our employees and also encourages them to participate in the process. An Awards Committee has been established to create specific awards, develop guidelines, and make recommendations for why, how, and when the awards will be presented. The Awards Committee is comprised of members representing several areas of Academic Affairs. Committee members will serve for a two-year period, which will begin June 1 each year. Committee members for the 2014-2015 academic year are as follows:

Kate Howard, Chair, Recruitment & Orientation Services
Martha Harrell, ITS Desktop and Smart Tech Support
Mary Rhodes, Provost Office
Bridget VanLandeghem, Athletic Academic Services
Yolanda Mathews, Enrollment Services

The Academic Affairs Awards Program has been designed to recognize those individuals who have made significant contributions to the success of the division and to convey our appreciation for their loyalty, commitment, and contributions to the University. The awards will be presented biannually at a Divisional Awards Ceremony.

Changes to this website, recommended by the AA Awards committee, should be forwarded to Webmaster.
