FACULTY & STAFF AWARDS

Vick Advising Awards

The Texas Exes James W. Vick Award for Academic Advising was created in 1992 and recognizes individuals who improve students’ overall experience at The University of Texas at Austin through outstanding advising.

Each year, new recipients are honored at an awards celebration and awarded $500.00. Students nominate academic advisors from across campus and a student selection committee determines the recipients. 

The nomination period for the 2020–21 Vick Award has closed. Winners will be announced in the spring.
