(UTN) - United Tribes environmental science instructor Mike Collins was honored with a Chapter Advisor Award during the 2005 Leadership Conference of the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES).
Students and advisors attending the conference voted the award based on activities, participation, and attitude of helpfulness during the conference. Collins was recently instrumental in organizing a new AISIS chapter at UTTC. He was one of two chapter advisors to receive the award February 12 in Albuquerque, NM.
"I'm especially proud because it was awarded by representatives of tribal colleges and other major universities attending the conference," said Collins.
Collins has also helped organized a campus chapter of SEEDS (Strategies for Ecology Education, Development and Sustainability), sponsored by the Ecological Society of America.
A current activity of the SEEDS chapter is to prepare a recommendation to declare the UTTC campus a "Green Campus," said Collins.
