The Office of Orientation and First-Year Experience at North Carolina University is excited to announce a new award to recognize outstanding advocates for undergraduate first-year students and transfers. The NCCU Outstanding First-Year Advocate Award will recognize a faculty/staff member, or administrator that has gone above and beyond to ensure student success for undergraduate first-year students and transfers.
We invite the university community to nominate someone who serves as an activist and/or supporter for first-year students - someone who is passionate about new students' success.
Nominations for the 2014-2015 academic year will open in early spring. Please contact Janelle Simmons at 919-530-6336 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions concerning the nomination process.
