UW-Eau Claire Adviser Receives
Excellence Award
MAILED: Oct. 2, 2001

         EAU CLAIRE — The Wisconsin Academic Advising Association has honored University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire adviser Jeannie Harms with its first Advising Excellence Award.
         “It is deeply rewarding to be appreciated for service to students,” said Harms, who received the award Sept. 21 at the 2001 WACADA Conference at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. “I am cognizant of the truth that I did not receive this award in a vacuum. I feel a tremendous sense of gratitude to all of my colleagues at UW-Eau Claire, both past and present, for sharing their wisdom and expertise.”
         A native of Pasadena, Calif., Harms received her bachelor’s degree from Trinity University in San Antonio and master’s degree from UW-Eau Claire. She began her career at UW-Eau Claire in 1980 as a residence hall director and became an academic advisor with Academic and Career Services in 1987.
         Any adviser in an institution of higher education in Wisconsin is eligible to receive the Advising Excellence Award, which recognizes those who demonstrate outstanding dedication to advising based on criteria consistent with the National Academic Advising Association. These include strength of interpersonal skills, frequency of contact with advisees, evidence of student success rate, advisee evaluations, mastery of institutional regulations, policies and procedures and perception by colleagues of advising skills.
