The Odney Award was established by the family of the late Robert Odney, a Fargo businessman and NDSU alumnus, to recognize outstanding undergraduate teaching by faculty at NDSU.

The Outstanding Faculty Advisor award recognizes faculty advisors who are committed to helping undergraduate students reach their full potential. The award was established by the Office of the Provost to highlight the importance of academic advising.
