Mary B. Coburn, vice president for Student Affairs, was named a Pillar of the Profession by the NASPA Foundation, the fundraising arm of NASPA-Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education. The distinction honors individuals who provided stellar leadership and service to the student affairs profession.
Coburn, with 13 other student affairs professionals, will receive the Pillar of the Profession Award during NASPA’s annual national conference in Phoenix in March.
“This recognition is well deserved for Mary, whose commitment to the students of Florida State University shines through her work on each and every day,” said President Eric J. Barron.
