The 2004-05 John Tate Awards for Excellence in Undergraduate Advising serve to recognize and reward academic advising.  They call attention to the contribution that academic advising makes in helping students formulate and achieve intellectual, career, and personal goals.  By highlighting the role that academic advising plays in the University's educational mission.
Karla Klinger (86-87 recipient), Tom McRoberts (90-91 recipient), Paula O'Loughlin (00-01 recipient), and Dian Lopez (01-02 recipient) will serve on the local screening committee.  The all-University selection committee will choose up to two awards to those whose primary responsibilities include advising, and up to two awards to faculty members throughout the University of Minnesota.  Recipients will receive $1,500, allocated through payroll or transferred to their department to use for professional purposes.  Awards will be presented at a public ceremony sometime in late April.
