Congratulations, Briana!

Briana Lloyd, Academic Services Coordinator in the Residential College, is the recipient of the Unsung Champion of Advising Award. This award recognizes individuals across LSA who are not formally designated advisers but who influence and guide students in an informal mentoring capacity.

Students commented that Briana frequently went above and beyond her normal responsibilities, taking time to assist them not only in making long-term course plans, but exploring their interests and encouraging them to challenge themselves as they pursued their goals.

Nominators noted that Briana reduces their stress considerably, creating a safe space for them to discuss their concerns, wellbeing, and overall engagement at U-M. Adjectives that come up frequently in nominations include “tireless,” “compassionate,” and “welcoming.”
