Graduate Mentor Awards (Faculty)

Woolsey Hall

The Graduate School honors faculty members annually at Convocation for their exemplary qualities as mentors. Each year, graduate students are invited to nominate faculty members who have shown outstanding commitment to advising and student support. Honorees representing each of the divisions are selected by a committee of students and faculty in consultation with the Graduate School Dean's office.
