Bozeman -- Adele Pittendrigh, associate dean of the Montana State University College of Letters and Science, was recognized as one of 10 national "Outstanding First-Year Student Advocates" by the National Resource Center for the First-Year Experience at the University of South Carolina and the Houghton Mifflin Company.

Pittendrigh will be honored at the 25th Annual Conference on the First-Year Experience in Atlanta in February.

Pittendrigh has been the associate dean of the College of Letters and Science since 1995. Pittendrigh oversaw MSU's "Reinventing the Core" initiative, resulting in the revision of MSU core curriculum, Core 2.0. She directs the University Seminar for first-year students and coordinates the NIH-funded Montana INBRE program to expand biomedical research in the state. She also recently received a National Science Foundation grant to help develop core science classes.
