Advising Shout Outs

Navigating the Engineering college experience can be overwhelming for students, but the advising staff is here to help students through the entire process – from your arrival on campus through graduation. We want to recognize some of the outstanding accomplishments of the advisors and their student advisees!

Nick Balser has immensely increased engagement amongst students who have sought help in their transition into our college. He goes beyond the call of duty in his mentorships, forming strong bonds with his students and creating a welcoming environment that makes students feel comfortable.  He is an incredible role model to his students, helping them become the engineering leaders they will need to be in their careers. Nick is an integral part to the futures of his students and this college, and we cannot thank him enough for all he has done.RILEY SHORT, PRESIDENT OF MISSOURI ENGINEERING STUDENT COUNCIL
  • Congratulations to academic advisor Sandra Brown!
  • Sandra Brown received the May 2019 MU Advisor Shout Out Award. The goal of the Advising Shout Out Award is to recognize two undergraduate advisors each semester who have demonstrated the qualities associated with outstanding undergraduate student advising. Keep up the great work Sandra!
  • Hats Off to Students Tapped into Secret Societies
  • Congratulations to Six Engineers tapped into secret societies on Tap Day: Rusty Martin — 1984 Civil and Environmental Engineering graduate; Jamie Flores – Electrical Engineering and Computer Science; Sheila Marie Connelly – Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering; Sharanya Kumar – Biomedical, Biological and Chemical Engineering; Anna Merkel – Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering; Alexander Shafer – Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
  • Academic advisors Tami Beatty and Nick Balser recently graduated from the inaugural class of the UM System Advisor Development Program (ADP). Beatty and Balser were nominated and selected through a competitive process. In addition to expanding and enriching networks at both the personal and institutional levels, ADP participants engage peer networks to identify challenges in advising and student support and use those networks to define excellence in advising and coaching competencies. Congratulations to Tami and Nick for paving the way for what we hope will be many more advisors participating in the UM System ADP!
