Advisor of the month

Advisor of the Month for November: Herbert Bruce

"I most enjoy interacting with students, helping them see and reach their potential as students as well as members of a greater community."

Herbert Bruce, November 2020, Advisor of the Month, Advising Matters at Virginia Tech.

The goal of the Advisor of the Month program is to recognize outstanding academic advisors. Recognition is based on evidence of qualities and practices that distinguish the nominee as an outstanding academic advisor to include:

  • Quality of information and advice
  • Strong interpersonal communication skills
  • Implementation of a "support and challenge" environment
  • Accessibility

Advisor of the Month is open to all undergraduate academic advisors within an academic college. Nominations may include individuals, teams, or groups. Students and faculty/staff are able to nominate an advisor. Self-nominations are also welcome. An advisor may only be nominated once an academic year.

Nominations are now closed for the 2020-2021 year.
