Jeffrey S. Smith Receives Psi Chi Regional Faculty Advisor Award
April 08, 2010
Jeffrey S. Smith, instructor of psychology at Mount Union College, has received the Psi Chi Regional Faculty Advisor Award. Psi Chi is a national academic honor society in psychology with a chapter at Mount Union College.
Smith earned his bachelor of arts degree from Georgia College in 1993 and his masters degree from the same institution in 1995. During his undergraduate years, Smith and several other students and professors chartered the Psi Chi chapter at Georgia College. Through their efforts, it developed into one of the strongest chapters in the region.
Soon after arriving at Mount Union he, along with several students and faculty members, began the process of establishing the College's own chapter of Psi Chi and he has been the chapter advisor since its inception. Smith feels honored to be named the Midwestern Advisor of the Year but is even more honored to have such a great group of students to work with at Mount Union.
"Our students know, and appreciate, the importance of Psi Chi and the responsibilities they have as members," he said. "They have all worked very hard to support Psi Chi's mission over the past few years and any award, including the Advisor of the Year Award, is due to their efforts and hard work. This award will be shared equally with them."
Smith is also the advisor for the Women's Wrestling Club and is one of the three faculty members traveling to Russia with students as part of a travel and study program offered by Mount Union. He has won several awards including the Summer Teaching and Research Award, the Technological Innovation Award and the Jane Weston Chapman Award.
