James W. Vick Award for Academic Advising
The Texas Exes James W. Vick Award for Academic Advising recognizes individuals who improve students’ overall experience at The University of Texas at Austin through outstanding advising. Each year, five winners are awarded $500 and are recognized with an awards ceremony in March. The nomination and selection process is done solely by students.
Our winners this year are:
Tom Griffith, Department of History
Megan Conner, Dean's Office, Student Division
Jay Brown, Department of Psychology
Created in 1992, the Vick Award is presented in the spring to academic advisors who exhibit superior expertise and have had an exceptionally positive influence on the educational experience of University of Texas at Austin students. Students from every academic area on campus can submit nominations for the award and a student selection committee selects the winners.
This year’s award recipients will be recognized at a special luncheon on March 20 in the Etter-Harbin Alumni Center. Each honoree will receive a certificate and $500. Past honorees also will be present at the luncheon to join in on the celebration of the outstanding advisors’ contributions to the campus.
Since 1992 Liberal Arts has had 32 winners.
