by Anna Weggel

The University will present John Tate Awards for Excellence in Undergraduate Advising to four University educators on Friday, College of Liberal Arts adviser Maureen Neerland said.

Two professors and two advisers receive the awards each year based on nominations from colleagues, Neerland said.

“(The recipients) are role models and absolutely excellent undergraduate advisers,” Neerland said.

Twin Cities campus recipients include forest resources professor Dorothy Anderson, CLA adviser Sally Taylor Lieberman and Ann Pineles, adviser in the Institute of Technology’s lower division programs. Linda Miller Cleary, an English professor at the University’s Duluth campus, also won the award.

Recipients will receive $1,500 and a certificate of recognition Friday at the Radisson Hotel Metrodome during an all-day professional development conference sponsored by the Academic Advising Network.
