Alexis George, undergraduate program coordinator at the Steve Hicks School of Social Work, has received the 2018 James W. Vick Award for Academic Advising

This award is given each year by the Texas Exes to recognize “individuals who improve students’ overall experience at The University of Texas at Austin through outstanding advising.” Recipients are nominated and selected by students. 

Alexis brings extraordinary gifts and graces to our school, and it’s a joy to see her excellent work and commitment to our students being recognized by the larger UT community,” said Allan Cole, senior associate dean for academic affairs.
