The Faculty Advisor of the Year Award is awarded to a Faculty Advisor from one of the SNAME Student Sections to recognize his or her contribution to the success of a section and its students. Student Section leaders who wish to nominate their Faculty Advisor submit nominations to the Student Steering Committee. The Student Steering Committee reviews the nominations and selects a recipient to be submitted and approved by the Awards Committee.
The chosen Faculty Advisor can then select a student or students to be awarded the Bruce and Dorothy Rylander Johnson Faculty Advisor of the Year Award. This is a $5000 award established and funded by Bruce and Dorothy Rylander Johnson for the Faculty Advisor to recognize a student or students who exemplify outstanding contribution to the field of naval, marine, and ocean engineering studies.
