Lindsay Coleman, student services manager and academic advisor for U-M Climate and Space, was honored as a finalist in the inaugural ACUM Advising Awards in the spring. The Advising Council of U-M offered the awards for the first time in 2022 to recognize the efforts of outstanding staff and faculty advisors.
Students nominated advisors from their departments for the award, and Coleman was one of 529 individual staff and faculty advisors mentioned in 1,114 nominations. Coleman was among four advisors from the College of Engineering who were named a finalist in the selection process.
Coleman said it was an honor to be nominated by students and recognized among so many talented advisors.
The winners and finalists were formally announced on Thursday, May 12 at the opening of the virtual ACUM Advising Symposium. Two winners were selected including Kristel Oelke in the Mechanical Engineering Academic Services Office and Bryan Abma in the Newnan Advising Center.
Inspired by the LSA Advising Awards (College of Literature, Science and the Arts), the ACUM Advising Awards publicly recognize the contributions advisors make to undergraduate, graduate and professional students in the Ann Arbor campus schools and colleges.
