Kudos are a chance for us to recognize the awesome work that we advisors are doing on campus. Feel free to give a shout out to other advisors, ACA committees, departments... hey, even yourself!

Kudos will be read during the announcements portion of the ACA monthly meetings. If there are any unread kudos, they will be posted here.

Please feel free to submit as many kudos as you'd like.

If you have any questions about the ACA Kudos project, you can reach Katie O'Donnell at kodonnell@austin.utexas.edu.
