Randy Little honored by National Academic Advising Association



Randy Little, a professor in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences in Mississippi State University’s Department of Agricultural Economics, has received a national award for his excellence in student advising. Little has formally guided the career paths of more than 300 undergraduate students since he began at MSU in 1990, and he has informally advised more than 1,000 students during that time as students value his wisdom and seek his guidance. The National Academic Advising Association chose Little as a winner of the Outstanding Advising Award for Faculty Academic Advising.

Little received his bachelor’s in agribusiness management from New Mexico State University, his master’s in agricultural economics from the University of Illinois at Urbana and his doctorate in agricultural economics from Oklahoma State University.

Little received the 2013 Irvin Atly Jefcoat Excellence in Advising Award, the premier advising recognition at MSU.
