2021 Excellence in Academic Advising Award Recipients

Congratulations to the 2021 recipients of the Excellence in Academic Advising Awards! In August 2021, the six-year graduation rate for students from all backgrounds and demographic populations was the highest in the history of the University of Memphis, largely due to the hard work of academic advisors, coaches, tutors, student advocates, mentors and technology leaders. The ability of our students, faculty and staff to successfully transition to a virtual learning environment during a pandemic is remarkable and contributed significantly to these record-breaking outcomes. We include this award in Accolades from previous year as they are not awarded during the Accolades cycle.
