on

Mark Miller, director of the Academic Advising Center at the University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College, is being recognized with a national award for his exceptional work in leading the center.

Miller has been selected as a recipient of the Outstanding Advising Administrator Award Certificate of Merit from NACADA: The Global Community for Academic Advising. He is in selective company, as he joins only 10 other colleagues nationally who earned this recognition from the organization this year. It is presented to individuals who have demonstrated qualities associated with outstanding academic advising administration.

Mark Miller has been selected as a recipient of the Outstanding Advising Administrator Award Certificate of Merit from NACADA: The Global Community for Academic Advising.

“I’m honored to be recognized by NACADA,” says Miller. “This award is a reflection of the great work by our caring, skilled, and student-centered faculty and professional advisors, and I share it with them.”

The award is especially noteworthy since just six years ago UC Blue Ash didn’t have an Academic Advising Center. Academic advisors help students identify their goals for college and develop an academic plan to reach those goals and earn their degree. Miller was hired by UC Blue Ash in 2011 to develop a team of professional academic advisors and provide training, professional development, and other resources to faculty advisors, who provide expert guidance to students within their specific field of study. All of this work has dramatically increased the availability of critical advising resources for students at UC Blue Ash.

“Mark is very deserving of this national recognition; he’s a highly accomplished leader who has done a tremendous job of creating and growing our Academic Advising Center. It’s made a big difference for our students and I couldn’t be happier for Mark and his team,” says Robin Lightner, associate dean of academic affairs at UC Blue Ash.

Miller will formally receive the award at the NACADA national conference in St. Louis in October.
