MAPP's Eric Faughnan has been awarded Academic Advisor of the Year at the University of Maryland's 16th annual Undergraduate Studies Advising Conference.
The honor is bestowed each year to one graduate assistant who excels in providing academic advising services to undergraduate students at the University through their graduate assistantship. Faughnan, who graduated this past spring with a Master of Architecture degree, served as an undergraduate advisor for the architecture program throughout his graduate program.
"Eric is highly deserving of this award," said Marie Howland, Professor and Interim Associate Dean for Academic Affairs for the School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation. "He has been an outstanding advisor, always taking initiative and stepping beyond his duties to fulfill his advising role. He is just the sort of student that this award must have had in mind when it was created."
This is the second time in three years that a graduate student in the Architecture program has been honored with this award. Rachel Simon won the award in 2009.
The School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation at the University of Maryland is home to four academic disciplines: architecture, urban planning, historic preservation and real estate development. Committed to educating its students and community about the importance of sustainability and smart growth, the School practices an interdisciplinary approach to education, research, creative work, and community and professional service.
