One of the 2014 Outstanding Advisor Awards was presented April 7 to Kathy Cohen, an academic advisor in the Terry College of Business. Presented by the Office of the Vice President for Instruction each spring, the award recognizes three outstanding UGA academic advisers—one faculty member, one staff member and one new adviser.
Cohen was chosen as the staff recipient of the Outstanding Undergraduate Academic Advisor Award for her impact on students well past their college experience. With 16 years of advising experience—12 in the Terry College and four in the College of Education—Cohen successfully balances the roles of mentor and friend, garnering much admirationn from her students.
Many alumni have attributed their success in life and business to Cohen, who has the ability to teach students how to discover their dreams and aspirations while encouraging them to believe in themselves in the process.
This is the second time Cohen has received a university-wide award, having been previously recognized in 2004.
