The 2008 recipient of the Dean's Office Award for Advising Excellence is Dr. Ray Clapsadle of the Department of Mathematical Sciences.
The Dean's Office Award for Advising Excellence was established in 1994 to recognize
a faculty member who has achieved distinction as an effective, caring mentor for students
progressing through one of our programs.The award consists of a plaque and a cash
award of $250.
When students file to graduate in the College office, they are asked to complete a
survey on the quality of advising they have received during their academic career.
They are also asked to acknowledge any faculty members who have had a particularly
influential impact on their academic experience.
This year’s recipient of the Dean’s Award for Advising Excellence certainly fulfills
the criteria for the award. Dr. Clapsadle is undoubtedly one of the most reliable,
conscientious, and hard-working advisors on campus, always willing to help out not
only in the department, but in the college and across the university.
