The Academic Advising & Transfer Center is proud to announce that Brydin Banning, from the School of Conflict Analysis and Resolution, has been named the 2013 Academic Advisor of the Year. Janette Muir, Associate Provost of Undergraduate Education, presented Brydin with this award and plaque at the Academic Advising Roundtable Luncheon on Friday, March 29, 2013.
Brydin Banning has served as an academic advisor since March 2011. Prior to serving as the Director of Undergraduate Student Services for the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution, she worked in Mason’s Admissions office as admissions counselor, recruiting students from around the country to attend her alma mater. After several years of traveling, Brydin sought a position that would provide her an opportunity to develop relationships with students at Mason, and her current position with S-CAR has allowed her to do just that. Her goal is to be a knowledgeable, supportive adult connection to the university for each student she advises. She enjoys watching her students’ interests and talents develop and is invested in their successes. Brydin is honored to be recognized for her service to the university and is thrilled to continue the tradition of advising excellence in the department.
