Hibdon to receive advisor award
College of Liberal Arts adviser Matthew Hibdon is the latest to be recognized nationally.

MTSU academic advisers are focused on student success, routinely checking emails and answering phone calls, even after hours.
College of Liberal Arts adviser Matthew Hibdon is the latest to be recognized nationally for his efforts with an award from the National Academic Advising Association. Hibdon will receive the 2017 Region III Excellence in Advising-New Advisor Award later this month.
Hibdon, who has worked at MTSU over a course of nine years and has also earned two degrees from the university, said the award is “a validation of our approach to advising within the College of Liberal Arts.”
 “I enjoy helping my assigned students, but I cannot do it alone,” Hibdon said. “I help students navigate the logistical parts of their degree programs, while faculty advisers serve as the curricular and career experts for students. Great teamwork between us has made all the difference.”
The National Academic Advising Association is a professional association for individuals in the work of academic advising. The organization has annual conferences that have large impact on adviser professional development. It has 10 regions throughout the United States and Canada.
Region III covers Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and West Virginia.
