Announcing the 2022 Graduate Mentor Award Recipients

April 26, 2022

A Message from Dean Cooley

Dear graduate students and faculty,

Each year, the Graduate Mentor Award recognizes faculty members who are exceptional in fostering the intellectual, professional, and personal development of their students. It is the University's principal award for superb teaching, advising, and mentoring of graduate students.

The selection committee, comprised of previous Graduate Mentor Award winners and delegates from the Graduate Student Assembly and the Graduate School, received scores of letters from graduate students and alumni nominating outstanding mentors from across our campus. We are grateful to everyone who took the time to submit thoughtful nominations acknowledging the dedication of these most generous scholars and teachers. These are professors who went above and beyond to help students thrive and succeed.

It is a great pleasure to announce and congratulate the 2022 recipients of the Graduate School's Graduate Mentor Award.

Sincerely,

Lynn Cooley
