Natalie Floreani, academic advisor for the Grace Abbott School of Social Work was recently named the "Advisor of the Month” by the Academic Advising Council (AAC) for the month of April.
The award was presented to Floreani at the monthly AAC meeting on April 15.
Her nominator said, “Natalie is committed to the success of all social work students. She is compassionate and open with students, gets to know them, celebrates their successes, and takes extra time with those struggling to help them figure out their next step. During COVID, social work students have had extra disruption because of their required field placement experience, many have had to rework their plans and even delay graduation. Natalie meets these difficult conversations with understanding and patience. Natalie is also a dedicated teammate. She offers to help other staff and faculty without hesitation, takes on more than her share of work, and is excellent at finding creative ways to get the day-to-day work done.”
For being nominated as the AAC Advisor of the Month, Floreani will receive a certificate and gift card to the UNO Bookstore.
