The Michigan Academic Advising Association (MIACADA) Pacesetter Award recognizes Executive Officers, Provosts and Academic or Student Affairs Officers (i.e., Vice Provosts, Vice Presidents, Deans, etc.) who exemplify a commitment to academic advising and are true advocates for advising, students, and advisors across the institution.

2019 Recipient | Dr. Monica Brockmeyer

Dr. Monica Brockmeyer serves as the Senior Associate Provost for Student Success at Wayne State University. Since 2012, Dr. Brockmeyer has led the way in creating better pathways for success for all students at Wayne State University. She has worked tirelessly in helping to give all our students the access they need to all WSU resources, which has led to dramatic increases in our graduation rates. One of the biggest pieces that she worked on was how to better link students with well trained and knowledgeable Academic Advisors. She worked collaboratively to create an Academic Advising initiative, which supported the hiring of almost 45 new Academic Advisors in 2012 to help increase support on campus. She assisted in creating the Advisor Training Academy (ATA), which works to help increase professional development in all advisors on campus through trainings, webinars, and certification programs. She helped to create Warrior Vision and Impact Program (VIP), which is a comprehensive student support program and learning community. She is always available and accessible to Advisors and encourages regular feedback. More than anything, you can tell that Dr. Brockmeyer truly cares about the Academic Advisors on campus and recognizes that it is a profession, like any other on campus.

Other key achievements include:

  • Led other senior administrators, academic deans and units to increase the six-year graduation rate at a large research intensive urban institution by 26 percentage points over six years – the largest rate of improvement in the nation for large public universities between 2011 and 2017.
  • Nearly doubled the four-year graduation rate in two years at a large research intensive urban institution.
  • Student Success initiative that led WSU to be receive the Association of Public and Land Grant Universities Degree Completion Award in 2018.
