Janet Moore, director of advising for the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering, has been named the National Academic Advising Association's Outstanding Academic Advising Administrator for 2019. 

Bob Karcher, assistant dean for engineering student services, isn't surprised. 

"What sets Janet apart from her peers is her enthusiasm for her work and the students she serves. It’s simply contagious," Karcher said. "Her staff believes in her and they simply want to follow her leadership. This award is a high honor."

Established in 1983, the NACADA Global Awards Program for Academic Advising honors individuals and institutions making significant impact on academic advising. NACADA is a representative and advocate of academic advising and those providing that service to higher education. 

The association has more than 13,000 members around the globe, and publishes the NACADA Journal and Academic Advising Today.

Moore began her career as an educator and psychometrist in K-12 before transitioning to higher education. As director of advising in the College of Engineering, Moore provides students with comprehensive, integrated advising services that complement their classroom instruction.

Before arriving at Auburn, Moore was the director for academic support and tutoring services at Jacksonville State University, where she was the lead researcher of a $3.5 million grant that provided tutoring, cooperative learning labs, supplemental instruction and retention initiatives for the university.
