Carolyn Huntington, lecturer and undergraduate program officer in the Department of Animal Sciences, has won the 2019 Outstanding Advising Award in the faculty advisor category from the National Academic Advising Association, or NACADA. She will be formally presented the award at the organization’s 2019 annual meeting in Louisville, Kentucky, in October.
This award recognizes effective advising qualities and practices, such as strong interpersonal skills, evidence of student success rate and helpful attitude toward advisees, that distinguish the recipient as an outstanding academic advisor.
“The best part of my job is the opportunity to mentor students,” said Huntington, who joined the Auburn faculty in 2015. “I feel honored that colleagues and students thought to nominate me for this recognition.”
The association’s Global Awards Program for Academic Advising honors individuals and institutions that make a significant impact on academic advising. NACADA is a representative and advocate of academic advising and those providing that service to higher education.
