First-Year Advisor Devin Ulm Receives Provost’s Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Advising


Devin Ulm, Academic Advisor in the First-Year Program at the University of Pittsburgh Swanson School of Engineering, has been selected as a recipient of the 2022 Provost’s Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Advising. The award recognizes Ulm’s commitment to advising and her success in working with undergraduates at the Swanson School.

“Devin is such an asset to students of the Swanson School of Engineering, to our SSOE professional staff, and to the University of Pittsburgh. One contribution that Devin brings to our team is a fresh perspective and a constant, unwavering desire to achieve excellence,” said Jill Harvey, Director of First Year Advising at the Swanson School. “It’s pretty rare that student services professionals come to their positions with an engineering background, but Devin’s own undergrad major was Engineering. In many ways, Devin’s personality and perspective are reflective of this. She is analytical, a problem-solver, and seeks constant improvement.”

The award includes a $1,000 cash prize and a grant of $1,500 to support professional development activities. 

Ulm and the other awardees will be recognized on Thursday, March 3, at the Advisor Appreciation Event.
