Alumni Association Distinguished Advising Award
Mary Hendrick Brignole

Mary Hendrick Brignole’s journey has included extensive experience in the corporate and non- profit worlds. While she was pursuing her undergraduate degree in the University College, she set new goals. This statement comes from her supervisor, Dr. Carl Chando.

“I will always remember that during her interview she made it clear that after retiring from another career …the only job she wanted was one as an academic advisor…she has consistently maintained the energy, spirit, and enthusiasm she brought to us on her first day on the job.”

Ms. Brignole has represented the interests of academic advising by encouraging students to participate in the University’s learning community program, “Fresh Connections.” A student best explains:

“Ms. Brignole scheduled courses for me that she knew would guarantee my success in college, including a learning community in games and computer programming where others were experiencing the transition to college. Ms. Brignole knew in advance what would ease my worries.”

Ms. Brignole has been instrumental in the annual execution of “Discover Your Major Day,” a program for all students that involves departments from across the University.
