Outstanding Faculty Mentors

Mentoring is one of the central professional development pillars of graduate education. Strong mentoring is essential to the successful creation of transformative leaders, knowledge mobilizers, master learners and career navigators.

Every year, the Graduate College recognizes outstanding faculty members for their outstanding service to the graduate student and postdoctoral scholar communities through mentoring excellence, commitment to professional development and career advancement and the fostering of inclusive, collaborative academic environments. Active, committed mentors not only offer coaching, modeling and feedback in academic and career development, but provide essential psychosocial and interpersonal connection and support.

Join the Graduate College as we congratulate this year’s awardees in a special virtual ceremony on Monday, February 22, 2021 at 1 p.m. MST.
