The Nebraska Board of Regents recently presented a KUDOS Award to Hanna Wanzenried Solberg, an advisor for the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences.
Through her cooperative spirit and inclusivity, Wanzenried Solberg has gone above and beyond for students during a unique and challenging time.
Advising around 300 students, Wanzenried Solberg has showed great care for her advisees, ensuring that her students are on a timely path to graduation. She is intentional about making decisions that affect her advisees, and if concerns are raised, she directs students to the right campus resources. She also works with the highest professional and ethical standards, stepping in to support students and colleagues alike when needed.
Wansenried Solberg’s nominator described her as someone who deeply cares about those in her community. She is an active representative on the Staff Advisory Council and co-leads many initiatives. As a member of the Staff Advisory Professional Development Committee, she was a key player in the creation and the continuation of the Staff Advisory Council Professional Development Fund, which has helped many staff members gain additional skills that directly enhance their employment at UNO. The fund has also changed the culture of discovery and knowledge pursuits in staff development.
Because the Staff Advisory Council Professional Development committee is responsible for distributing awards and professional development fund allocations, Wanzenried Solberg has proven herself to intentional and equitable in these important duties.
Even with all of her other responsibilities, she regularly provides updates to her college about the opportunities and resources afforded by the SAC and is the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences representative for UNO’s Academic Recovery Program.
“Hanna is a Maverick,” her nominator remarks. “She is committed to growing as a professional, and like a true Maverick, she is creating an environment for others to grow with her.”
