Susan Hubbard, professor and associate dean for academic affairs in the College of Human Sciences, received the 2015 Excellence in Administration Award from the National Academic Advising Association, or NACADA, at its Region 4 conference in Auburn on April 13.

The NACADA Region 4 includes Alabama, the Caribbean, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi and Puerto Rico. In February, Hubbard was recognized with Auburn University’s Outstanding Academic Advising Administrator Award at the Provost’s Advising Awards ceremony. “Dr. Hubbard is a powerful role model for her advisees and advisor,” said June Henton, dean of the College of Human Sciences. “Not only has she continued to be a leader in the traditional advising framework on campus, but she has truly been an innovator in the pursuit of emerging trends in higher education.”

A three-time Auburn alumna, Hubbard began her career at Auburn in 1988 as a conference facilitator at The Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center. After earning her doctoral degree, she moved to academia in 1993 as an assistant professor in the Hotel and Restaurant Management program and has been a faculty member in the college for 22 years. Hubbard became associate dean in 2006.
