Manger will be presented with the award at the February Academic Advising Council meeting.
Manger was nominated by two of her peers. Her first nominator said, "Manger is an advisor that takes her position with personality and passion. Manger's dedication to students is exemplary and is a standard that can be followed by many. I have had the pleasure of hearing Manger's name from students of mine, who have expressed how kind, thoughtful, caring, and transformational Manger can be. I believe Manger should receive the Advisor of the Month Award, because Manger goes above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that her students are well taken care of.”
Her second nominator said, “Manger is an advisor who naturally cares and connects with her students in a way that makes other advisors envious. She constantly puts her students' needs to the forefront of her meetings by connecting them to extracurriculars, community engagement opportunities, and campus employment. When time allows, Manger will speak and meet with her students past the allotted appointment time to make sure students get exactly what they need from their appointments. Her work on the departmental communication schedule has helped our team coordinate student facing messages and maintain a cohesive brand without overwhelming first year students' inboxes. Manger has proven her adaptability to her new caseload as an academic advisor and excelled in her new field.”
For being selected as the AAC Advisor of the Month, Manger will receive a certificate and gift card.
