We are very pleased to announce that Thom Chivens is a recipient of the 2014 LSA Excellence in Concentration Advising Award.  This award was created in 1988 by the College Executive Committee to recognize academic advisors who have demonstrated particular care and attention to undergraduate students.  Two concentration advisors are chosen each year for this award.

His role as concentration advisor has been a vital component of ongoing changes in our undergraduate program.   With his expertise across the four sub-fields, active engagement with research and publishing and the crowds of students that frequent his office hours, Thom's commitment to the quality of our undergraduate program is obvious and we are very happy to see his dedication acknowledged in circles beyond the department.
