Abstract

This paper reports the results of a research study of recipients of the "Outstanding First-Year Student Advocate" award given annually by the National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition and Houghton Mifflin Company. A survey revealed the First-Year Student Advocates to be senior members in terms of length of service at their institutions. They tackled tough problems, were creative and persistent, took risks, and empowered others.
