Nancy Luebbert Receives Academic Support Educators Award
May 08, 2018
Nancy Luebbert, director of Academic Success for the College of Law in Moscow, received the 2018 Excellence Award from the Association of Academic Support Educators (AASE). AASE is the national association for academic support/success professionals. It provides educators like Luebbert an opportunity to collaborate and work collectively to develop research-based teaching methods and design programs that enhance student learning for law school, the bar exam, and legal practice.
The Excellence Award recognizes excellence in providing academic support services to students and in mentoring and providing support to other academic support professionals.
Luebbert has been the director of Academic Success at the University of Idaho College of Law since 2001. She earned a Juris Doctor magna cum laude from U of I in 1998 and a Bachelor of Artssumma cum laude from Dartmouth College in 1978, with highest honors in history and honors in religion.
From her day-to-day work with students to the implementation of programs like Early Welcome, Lawyering Fundamentals, Applied Legal Reasoning, and the new Academic Skills Labs, Luebbert is above all an advocate for student success. She has been instrumental on the Curriculum Committee for years, in particular with the development of the Academic Plan process, her tireless advocacy for a for-credit bar preparation class, and the implementation of requirements to support student success. Luebbert's deep knowledge and astute analyses of the curriculum and course schedules are, together, another avenue by which she advocates for students, helping the College of Law provide a balanced, effective curriculum. In countless ways, the College of Law relies rely on her for record keeping, statistics, and institutional knowledge – the depth and breadth of which is singular and impressive. Luebbert has also been an invaluable mentor and source of support to her academic success colleagues, both in the College of Law and in the academic support community as a whole.
She will be recognized at the AASE Annual Meeting in St. Louis in May.
