Nada Tamim, director of undergraduate programs for the Department of Animal and Poultry Sciences, has received the university’s 2016 Alumni Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Academic Advising.
Established by the Virginia Tech Alumni Association, the Alumni Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Academic Advising is presented annually by the Office of the Provost to a Virginia Tech faculty member who has been particularly dedicated and effective while advising undergraduate students. Recipients may be nominated by university colleagues or students, are selected by a committee of former award winners, receive a $2,000 prize, and are inducted into the university’s Academy of Advising Excellence.
“Nada Tamim is an outstanding and gifted undergraduate advisor,” wrote David Gerrard, professor and head of the Department of Animal and Poultry Sciences. “She has a commitment to excellence and expects her advisees to adopt this approach to education. Through our undergraduate advising office, the classroom and a number of informal settings, Nada exudes a positive attitude and helps students reach their dreams.”
