Margie Carlson, program assistant for the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Division of Lifelong Learning and Community Engagement, has been selected as the recipient of the Foundation Award from the Wisconsin Academic Advising Association (WACADA).
This award is presented to individuals whose hard work and dedication positively influences the students’ perceptions of an advising office and/or the overall functioning of the office.
WACADA membership has grown to more than 230 people representing UW System colleges and universities, private universities, and the Wisconsin Technical College System. The organization provides opportunities for networking and professional development, encourages members to participate in professional development activities, supports and promotes professional standards of academic advising, fosters recognition of academic advising as a profession; and, as an affiliate of the National Academic Advising Association, supports NACADA goals and programs.
Carlson will be honored and presented with the award in Whitewater during the WACADA Annual Conference in September.
Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to contribute calendar items, campus announcements and other good news to UW Oshkosh Today.
