Linda Bruner, student services coordinator in Auburn’s College of Human Sciences, has been awarded the Kappa Omicron Nu 2020-21 Adviser Award for Excellence.

Kappa Omicron Nu, or KON, the national human sciences honor society, awards the honor to a chapter adviser “who has made outstanding contributions to the honor society in the role of adviser.” Auburn’s chapter, Omicron Alpha Nu, inducted 66 new members this year and has increasingly been involved at the national level.

Consumer and Design Sciences graduate Swagata Chakraborty served as a student board member last term, representing Auburn at the national level. Doctoral student Mohammad Shahidul Kader presented his research at the KON 2021 virtual conclave after winning the New Initiatives Grant.

In addition to advising KON members, Bruner advises all pre-health students in the college, serves as the peer tutoring program coordinator and advises roughly one-third of all human sciences students. She has previously been recognized for advising excellence by Auburn and the National Academic Advising Association, the global academic advising advocacy group.
