Warnick Recognized for Advising

Jason E. Warnick, assistant professor of psychology, at Arkansas Tech has been recognized with an Outstanding Advising Award in the faculty category from the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA).

The award is presented annually to individuals who “have demonstrated qualities associated with outstanding academic advising of students or outstanding academic advising administration.”

Warnick is being recognized in the faculty category, which honors those whose primary responsibility is teaching, and they spend a portion of their time providing academic advising to students.

Warnick is one of ten faculty members from across the country being honored with the award this year.

In addition to his teaching responsibilities, Warnick serves in various capacities around campus to help students transition to college.  Each summer he serves for six weeks as a full-time advisor, and he speaks at orientation sessions throughout the summer.

Warnick also teaches a Tech 1001 course, which is an orientation class for incoming freshmen, and he volunteers as a mentor in the university’s Bridge to Excellence program.

Warnick will be honored and presented with the award in Florida during the NACADA annual conference this fall.
