Awards and Recognition

"Toot Your Horn Tuesdays" and "Top Toots" Recognition 

Members of the UK community are encouraged to "toot your horns" and tell us about the outstanding work being done by advisors on UK's campus.  You may recognize yourself or a valued colleague via the submission of this short online form.  "Top Toots!" will be selected from the pool, and those advisors will be featured in an upcoming Advising Network Weekly Digest.  


If a College or Organizational Unit is doing good work that you'd like to have featured, we also invite you to submit information about those initiatives!   To "Toot Your Horn" for a college or org unit, submit an Announcement for the digest or email with "Toot Your Horn" as the subject line.


The Advising Network weekly digest will regularly feature a "Toot Your Horn Tuesday" section.    The section will include the "Top Toots!" advisor spotlights, as well as highlight good work being done by the Advising Network and colleges/units across campus.
