Fort Hays State’s Dr. Brooke Moore recognized for outstanding service as faculty advisor


HAYS, Kan. – Dr. Brooke Moore, interim chair of Fort Hays State University’s Department of Advanced Education Programs, was selected as an Outstanding Advising Award Winner in the Faculty Advising category as part of the 2018 NACADA Global Awards Program for Academic Advising.

This award is presented to individuals who have demonstrated qualities associated with outstanding academic advising of students. The Faculty Academic Advising category includes those individuals whose primary responsibility is teaching and who spend a portion of their time providing academic advising services to students. The award was presented at the recent NACADA Annual Conference in Phoenix, Ariz.

Her advisees supported her nomination for the award, which honors Moore’s dedication to student success.

One student said, “She understands what each student is going through, makes time to speak and communicate with you, and will always help you find a solution to a dilemma. Many of us in graduate school are working full time, with many other obligations; Dr. Moore assisted in keeping us focused and grounded. Even at the most stressful times, I never felt like I was in dire straits.”

“This award recognizes that Fort Hays State University’s largest graduate department, Advanced Education Programs, has dedicated and determined academic advisors who are supportive of their students,” said Dr. Patti Griffin, director of the Academic Advising and Career Exploration Center.

“Dr. Moore is a true testament to the hard work and support provided to the students in the department. Their advisors have a mind and willingness to invest deeply and personally in their students and their programs,” said Griffin.

NACADA’s membership has grown to over 14,000 faculty, professional advisors, administrators, counselors, and others in academic and student affairs concerned with the intellectual, personal, and vocational needs of students. In addition, NACADA promotes student success by advancing the field of academic advising globally, providing opportunities for professional development, networking, and leadership for a diverse membership.
