On December 14, Dr. Terry Cook, Vice President for Student Engagement, was awarded the Board of Regent’s Above and Beyond Award.
Terry has worked at NMSU since 1993, and has served in roles of progressive responsibility. In her current role as Assistant Vice President for Student Engagement, she is known for her enthusiasm, wisdom, and dedication, both as a manager and as an expert in student retention and graduation. Her energy is legendary, and she is an extraordinary collaborator: she works with Housing and Residential Life on Aggie Welcome and Orientation; University Admissions on New Student Registration Events; and Colleges and Departments on Campus Tutoring. She has also collaborated on, among other things, financial literacy programming, grants, workshops, Foundations of Excellence, University Assessment, and programming for parents and families.
In addition, she does all this while keeping up with best practices in student success, retention, and graduation and sharing those best practices with her staff.
Terry Cook joins Jeanelle Chavez as the second Aboveand Beyond Winner from SAEM for this year.
