Donald C. Brate Distinguished Advising Prize
In the Spring of 2009 the Dean of Studies established an Advising Prize to "recognize and reward a member of the Union College community who has excelled as an academic advisor." Each year, the Dean of Studies and COTA request nominations from members of the senior, junior and sophomore classes. COTA then reviews the nominations and makes a recommendation to the Dean.
The Donald C. Brate Distinguished Advising Prize for 2015 is awarded to Steven Rice, Professor of Biology.
