Fox and Smith Named Academic Advisors of the Year
Two IPFW academic advisors who "...engage in advising as teaching...helping students see the connections between their goals and our curriculum, versus strictly course scheduling..." are the 2014 IPFW Academic Advisors of the Year. Corrie Fox, from the Mastodon Advising Center (MAC), and Kari Smith, from the Doermer School of Business (DSB), received their award plaques during the annual academic advising luncheon on April 10.
      Fox's nomination papers noted that she has been an academic advisor in the MAC for nearly seven years and in that time has counseled several hundred students each semester, many of whom are readmitted students.
      Smith has been advising DSB students for nearly five years and gets high praise from both her nominators and the students she has advised. Read the story
