Government Undergraduate Advisor Receives 2007 NACADA Region VII Scholarship Award
Posted: February 22, 2007
Campbell is pursuing a masters degree in Higher Education at the University of Texas. She plans to pursue a career in academic advising within higher education in Region VII. She became interested in academic advising because of her own personal experience with a "fabulous" advisor at Boston University. She is very interested in research involving high school students and first generation college student issues. She is currently involved in developing an advising assessment program with the UT College of Liberal Arts and "hopes to see the implementation of an advising syllabus this summer."
Jo Anne Huber, Senior Academic Advisor, describes Lauren as "exceptional" and "creative," says that she has tremendous initiative and drive, and is a favorite among students. A faculty member, Dr. Sharon Justice, is impressed with Lauren's research skills, leadership, and organizational abilities. Both of them talk about Lauren's commitment to students and to the profession of academic advising.
Terri Blevins, NACADA Region VII Chair stated, "I am pleased to be able to present the 2007 NACADA Region VII Graduate Student Scholarship Award to Lauren. As a region, we have wanted to encourage participation in professional development with graduate students, and we are proud to have dedicated advisors like Lauren representing the Region." The NACADA Region VII Graduate Student Scholarship Award is given to graduate students who are involved in academic advising, and who intend to pursue a career in higher education and advising.
