Dewald Named Oustanding Faculty Advisor
Provost Marten denBoer honored this year’s Outstanding Academic Advisors for their dedication to students at an awards reception in May. Dr. Ben Dewald was selected as the college’s 2015 Outstanding Faculty Advisor. The selection committee used the nominations and comments provided by students, staff and faculty to select Dewald for this honor.
Dewald is the faculty advisor for the Restaurant and Food Professionals, a co-curricular student organization at The Collins College.
This year, 16 faculty members were nominated, seven of which do not have formal advising roles. This is an indicator of how great it is to have so many faculty members advising our students on the curriculum, co-curricular activities, careers, and other life choices.
