Diane Donnelly, director of Montana State University's Academic Advising Center, has won the Region 8 Advising Administrator of the Year award from the National Academic Advising Association.

Donnelly has been an adviser in the MSU University Studies Academic Advising Center for 15 years.

"Diane has been a driving force in moving the University Studies advising office from its role in serving only undeclared students to its current role serving as the university-wide advising center," said Jeff Adams, MSU's assistant vice provost for undergraduate education. "In this new capacity, the center now serves an ever-increasing number of students from outside the University Studies program and also serves as the 'advising help-line' for faculty advisors from across campus."

NACADA is an organization that promotes and supports quality academic advising in institutions of higher education to enhance the educational development of students. Region 8 includes Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, Alberta, British Columbia, and the Yukon. The organization congratulates Diane and says "The committee was most impressed with your excellent work on behalf of students and your colleagues and your commitment to the profession of academic advising."

Donnelly received her award at the Northwest Region 8 NACADA Conference held recently in Seattle.
