The University of Findlay is pleased to announce the winners of the 2022 Advisor of the Year award. The award, developed by the Academic Advising Committee, recognizes a faculty member from each college who has had a positive influence on undergraduate students through academic advising.

The winners receive a one-year NACADA membership and
will now go on to compete for the University's Faculty Advisor of the
Year award, which will be announced later this fall.
“Each of the faculty have been awarded this high honor because of the relationship building that they have done with their advisees. I have said for many years that when this relationship building is done correctly it is one of the most rewarding and unique bonds that an advisor and their advisee will have. Advising can have such a great impact on students when they are here, but also when they graduate and enter the workforce as alumni."
-Glenn Miehls, director of academic advising
