Marsha D. McCormick Award for Excellence in Advising
Professor Clifford Pollock receives the Marsha D. McCormick Award for excellence in advising first year students. Advising first year students takes on particular significance since this is the initiation period for young adults into a unique and intense learning community. At Cornell, this means knowing how to make referrals for academic issues, career and guidance counseling, and mental health assessment. Professor Pollock was able to customize each relationship, blend skills of interest, and guide and mentor each of his advisees. Professor Pollock received nominations from first year students, faculty and administration.
