Dr. Ozgun Caliskan Demirag, associate professor of operations and supply chain management, has received the 2021 Penn State Excellence in Advising Award in the faculty adviser category. She was honored in a virtual ceremony this spring.

Demirag was chosen for her commitment to academic advising. Selection committee members noted that they were impressed with Demirag’s “commitment to building relationships with students by being available, attentive, and proactive while also bringing in qualities of her research in working with students.”

“Effective academic advising is an essential element of student success and the impact faculty members can have in guiding students cannot be underestimated,” said Penn State Behrend Chancellor Ralph Ford. “Strong student-faculty relationships are among Behrend’s biggest strengths because of dedicated, involved faculty like Dr. Demirag.”
