Posted: March 26, 2013
On March 22, 2013 at the annual Liberal Arts Advisor Training and Retreat, Nancy Sutherland, undergraduate advisor for the History Department, received the College of Liberal Arts’ highest honor, the Distinguished Service to Advising Award.
A career achievement award, which recognizes sustained excellence in and dedication to advising over many years, the Distinguished Service to Advising Award may be won only once. Nancy’s colleagues in Liberal Arts chose her as the recipient, a selection that will place her name on a plaque to be hung with honor in Gebauer Hall.
“I was honored to receive the Distinguished Service to Advising Award,” said Nancy. “It was extra special because I was nominated and selected by my advising colleagues.”
Liberal Arts advisors nominated Nancy for her “demonstrated expertise in her field for many years. She has had a long career at UT and has dedicated her life to working with students through academic advising…every decision that she makes is with the best intention in support of our students.”
History Department chair Alan Tully noted that this award “is a wonderful and fitting acknowledgement of Nancy’s committed service to students, the Department and the University.”
She has been a dedicated advisor for over 25 years and is a two-time recipient of the Texas Exes James W. Vick Award for Academic Advising.
