Leslie Ross, academic program manager in the Georgia Tech School of Public Policy was honored with awards at the 2018 Faculty and Staff Honors Luncheon on Wednesday, April 11. Ross has also been selected as a 2018 Outstanding Advising Award Winner in the Primary Advising category by the Global Community for Academic Advising (NACADA).

Ross was honored by Georgia Tech with the Outstanding Undergraduate Academic Advising Staff Advisor Award, an Institute-wide award recognizing a staff and faculty member who renders outstanding performance in undergraduate academic advising. The nomination noted Ross’s generous contributions to sectors of advising, recruitment, diversity, and alumni relations within the School of Public Policy and lauded her as entrepreneurial, responsive to both faculty and student needs, commonly anticipating issues before they arise, facilitating the smooth progression of students through their degree requirements, and working with students and faculty to find solutions to idiosyncratic problems that inevitably occur. She will receive the NACADA award at the organization’s annual Fall Conference.
