DISTINGUISHED MENTOR AWARD

The Graduate School is proud to announce the 2015 recipients of the Distinguished Mentor Award. The Graduate School received nominations from across campus, lauding those who serve as advisor, teacher, advocate, sponsor and role model. This year’s winners of the Distinguished Mentor Award are: Amy Bergerson, Educational Leadership & Policy; Carol Lim, Pharmaceutics and Pharmaceutical Chemistry; and Richard Dorsky, Neurobiology.

These mentors are charged with “the success of the students who enter the sphere of their care” and do it in an outstanding and exceptional way.

“My job is simply to facilitate the actualization of that potential through sincere care for them.  My work honors those who took the time to care for me and I hope to build a community of scholars,” said Bergerson

We congratulate this year’s winners on their contribution to excellent mentorship on campus.

Recipients of the graduate student and postdoctoral scholar Distinguished Mentor Award receive an award and $2,500.
