Outstanding Faculty Mentors

Home / Resources Faculty and Staff / Outstanding Faculty Members

Congratulations to our 2018-2019 awardees and nominees!

On Wednesday, Jan. 30 we recognized our 2018-2019 nominees and honored this year's recipients of the Outstanding Postdoctoral Mentor, Outstanding Doctoral Mentor, Outstanding Master's Mentor and Outstanding Instructional Faculty Awards. Highlighted this year by an address by Vice Provost for Academic Personnel Deborah Clarke and remarks by each of this year's recipients, the Outstanding Faculty Mentor Awards is an opportunity for ASU's graduate and postdoctoral communities to share in celebrating inspirations and accomplishments in mentorship.

This event is open to all graduate faculty, staff, postdoctoral scholars and graduate students.

Mentoring is one of the central professional development pillars of a 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.
