Professor receives advising award

Sonja Wilhelm Stanis, an assistant professor in the parks, recreation and tourism department in the School of Natural Resources, received last month the Advisers Forum Advising Shout Out award. 

Stanis, who counsels undergraduate and graduate students, was nominated by one of her advisees. 

“I am very proud and honored by this award,” Stanis said. “I work hard to help students navigate not only their courses, but also other opportunities and challenges during their experience at MU. 

“It is very rewarding to know that those efforts are recognized and appreciated.”

The award, which was first presented in December 2010, is given twice a semester and recognizes undergraduate advisers for the impact they make on students’ lives.
