School of Business Mentors Association receives merit award
The Mentors Association within The Citadel School of Business Administration has been recognized by the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA) with the “Outstanding Institution Advising Program Certificate of Merit.”
The award will be presented at the annual NACADA conference in San Antonio, Texas, this fall.
“The Citadel School of Business Mentors Association has become an integral part of our focus on career preparation for students,” said Ronald F. Green, dean of the School of Business Administration.
“Volunteer mentors serve as trusted advisors to students as they plan and evaluate their life choices,” Green said. “We are pleased with this national recognition of our program and want to thank the 200-plus mentors who have given their time and energy to make the program successful.”
The Mentors Association was established to enrich the education of business students through a relationship with local business leaders. A group of active and retired top executives from corporate America, the mentors are committed to sharing their experiences with The Citadel’s undergraduate and graduate business students, helping them develop career ideas and enhance their prospects for success.
NACADA promotes and supports quality academic advising in institutions of higher education to enhance the educational development of students.
