UNI Professor of Accounting Gerald Smith was honored with a 2015 UNI Above and Beyond Award from the Northern Iowa Student Government and Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning.
"I am very honored and humbled to receive this award," Smith said. "I love helping students make decisions; to see students accomplish their academic and career goals is very rewarding."
The Above and Beyond Award recognizes faculty and staff who have made a significant impact on students, as well as the UNI community as a whole.
All of this year‘s nominees were praised for the time and effort that they gave outside of the classroom to students. In particular, Smith was nominated by three separate individuals for his work as an advisor for an on-campus fraternity, for the countless hours he spent helping students with work for his classes, and for the advice and support he gave when students had questions about life goals and their careers.
"I nominated Gerald for his dedication and commitment outside of his classrooms," said Erick Martin (Sociology). "Two years ago he accepted the offer to become the faculty advisor for Sigma Alpha Epsilon. During his time as advisor he has taken a very active and supportive role with the gentlemen of the fraternity. Gerald has gone far beyond the responsibilities of the job and has become an indispensable part of the fraternity. He takes the same, if not more, dedication and care with the fraternity men as he does with his students. Gerald has performed duties far beyond what was required as a professor and an advisor. I, along with many other UNI students, am lucky to have him in our lives and I have been privileged to know him as a supervisor and as a friend."
