Alan Santos, director of student services in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, has received the Board of Regents University System of Maryland Staff Award for Outstanding Service to Students in an Academic Environment.

Board of Regents University System of Maryland Staff Awards represent the highest honor bestowed by the Board or Regents for achievements of staff employees from institutions within the University System of Maryland. The award for Outstanding Service to Students in an Academic Environment honors those who consistently make a difference in student lives, although not a part of their job description, and contribute an original, innovative idea that was implemented and transformed an aspect of the "student experience."

Colleagues noted Santos' grace under pressure and his concern for students beyond their academic success. Current and former students pointed to his enthusiasm, positive attitude and friendliness. He was commended for making it easier for civil and environmental engineering students to study abroad.

Earlier this summer, Clark School staff member Jenna Dolan and Chair of Fire Protection Engineering Jim Milke also were honored by the campus for their advising efforts.
