ALUMNA PROVIDES AWARD-WINNING ADVISING
“She has always maintained a polite and professional demeanor, has never seemed overwhelmed, and has always met every request—no matter how outrageous—with efficiency and competence,” wrote her nominator. “Without Kim Williams, I could not do my job.”
As academic adviser 2 in the English department, Williams assists more than 800 students. Her duties range from preparing and filing degree plans to verifying students for graduation.
Over the past few years, Williams juggled her professional tasks with her own academic responsibilities—attending and graduating from UH with a master’s degree in communication.
Her dedication to the university has earned her the new Professional Academic Advising Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Academic Advising. The award, which carries a $1,000 check and a plaque, recognizes a staff member who demonstrates excellence in undergraduate student advising.
